Twelve abandoned horses find a home in Motril

TWELVE horses abandoned in the area of Playa Granada (Motril) have found a home thanks to the town’s council.

The condition of the horses, which had been left outdoors and unattended for months on several land plots in the town, sparked the concern of neighbours, who alerted the Guardia Civil and other authorities.

Motril Mayor Luisa Garcia Chamorro explained that the council had tried to find and contact the horses’ owners, but been unable to track them down.

Therefore, Ms Garcia said, the council decided to relocate them to the municipal animal shelter and they will be put up for adoption unless their owners claim them back.
