Better educated

Saskatchewan SPCA sees increase in complaints about horse neglect.

Complaints often come in from neighbours or people driving along the highway if the horses are close to the roads, say SPCA staff.

“Years ago, people never used to phone in complaints. Now society is no longer tolerating animal neglect and abuse,” said Howden. “Society as a whole is becoming better educated.”

The problem is not restricted to Saskatchewan, said Howden.

A representative from the Alberta SPCA confirmed the number of horse seizures in that province is also on the rise.
