Recession hits Ireland's horses

Thousands left to survive on their own after being abandoned by owners unable to afford them.


    The financial crisis in Ireland has had serious human consequences with massive job losses.  

    But the country's animals have become victims of it as well.  

    The recession has reportedly hit thousands of horses, which have been left to survive on their own after being abandoned by their owners who could not afford to keep them.
