Sadly, it’s a common practice in parts of Romania to keep wild horses chained by their front or hind legs.
This is done to keep the horses from running away.
In the video below, one of these helpless horses shows his gratitude to his savior — veterinarian Ovidiu Rosu — after his front legs are finally freed from the chains wrapped around his front legs, preventing him from walking properly around his homeland in Letea, Romania. One YouTube commenter says, “The horse could easily get tangled in brush or trip and fall. If the horse couldn’t get back on its feet, it would die.
I hope you can help educate people in Romania about the dangers of this practice.”
Watch the incredible moment that the horse realizes he can move and gallop again, without pain or suffering. Seeing the wild horse approach Ovidiu and nuzzle his massive head right up to his savior’s face nearly brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful, surreal interaction!
