An animal charity is appealing to people not to tether their horses after another was found starving in Tipperary.
A small pony was discovered tied to a tree on a very short rope, with no food, water or shelter, about a kilometre outside Killenaule.
It was reported to My Lovely Horse Rescue, who say they see incidents like this and much worse all over the country.
It comes just weeks after a horse was found in similar circumstances in Clonmel.
Speaking on Tipp Today, Martina Kenny from My Lovely Horse Rescue says a horse should never be tethered in a field.
