    That’s awful. Any idea whether they’re falling in and drowning or being dumped there? So sad.

      Sunshine, it just happens to be right beside a halting site with animals. But the occupants know nothing!

    Typical racist broadsheet .if it’s part of someones culture to run horses ragged and dump their carcasses in the canal then who are we to judge.

    That’s a pity, he was probably getting a drink and fell in.
    The kids that swim at Suir road will be swimming in horse bile today.

          I’m not saying anything.
          It’s Friday, it’s late, I’m off to the pub.

          Might head to that nice pub on Camden St.

    Disgraceful. The animal welfare laws in this country are shameful. No animal deserves to end its life like that. Who ever did this to it should be treated just as badly.
