A young horse with a broken leg was cruelly dumped among rubbish in an area known for fly-tipping.
The distressed animal was spotted by a member of the public in Upminster in Essex early on Monday, July 7 and moved her to safety.
She was tied up with blue twine and stood on an isolated patch of scrubland surrounded by waste.
After being examined by a vet the horse, thought to be around one-year-old, had to be put to sleep to stop her suffering further.
