Horse abandoned in Kensington lot

Posted: November 30, 2011

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.

Officers are following some leads, but anyone with information in this case, should call the Pennsylvania SPCA at 215-426-6304 Ext. 270.
