Animal Rights In Haiti? Is There Such A Thing?

Look at this picture... Hinche, Haiti - A horse with a broken leg abandoned... Left on the side of the road, in pain, with a piece of wood tied to its broken leg, bleeding, with very little food to eat.

I doubt if there are veterinarians in Haiti to treat a broken let on a horse. Honestly, I have never even seen signs for vets in my hometown.

Bet la deja gen yon gwo maleng sou do li, epi yon pran li, mennen li nan bouk, fe li pote chay jouk pye li kase.

I asked around in the street corner where I saw the horse with the broken leg, someone told me the animal tripped while crossing a water canal nearby.

So its owner, a poor peasant from the countryside of Haiti, did the very best he/she could under the circumstances...

Wow...

I never felt sorry for a horse before. But it is clear to me that this animal is in pain...
