Officials are seeking the owner of a horse that was abandoned earlier this week in a vacant lot in Kensington
The Pennsylvania SPCA's Humane Law Enforcement Department said it officers were directed to the trash strewn lot on the 3500 block of Ella Street by a call from a concerned person on Sunday.
George Bengal, director of humane law enforcement, said the white, Arabian-type horse, was in poor condition.
"The horse was underweight and appeared to be malnourished. It also had a large infected wound beneath its right elbow," said Bengal.
The horse is being stabled at the Pennsylvania SPCA headquarters where it is receiving veterinary care, Bengal said.
