You can see the latest, appalling photos of a few suffering survivors here:

UPDATE 3/27/2017; Animal Friends Croatia

English Translation:

Citizens say: Subtract horses and punish abusers!

AFC received the latest, alarming images of starving horses from Oroslavja.

- Other people need to hand over the horses for adoption; prohibit him again keeping and care of animals.

Animal Friends buried the e-mails and calls citizens horrified because information from the media about the desperate situation in which there are undernourished horses on the farm of Joseph Tuđe. The association has received the latest photos from the farm incurred yesterday, where it is obvious that the situation is alarming: from 20 to 30 survivors of the sick horses permanently closed, no water, food and bedding, some barely standing of weakness, and a foal can not rise, some waste hair, full of wounds that were not treated with veterinary and they urgently need help to survive.

Photos clearly show that the situation after the release of the relevant institutions on the ground and frightening the horses that should be addressed immediately seized and disposed of. Luka Oman, president of Animal Friends, commends the urgency of the competent services, but notes that horses in the long run will help control: "Since it is a neglect for a long period of time, the horses should be permanently deprive irresponsible administrator. It is necessary in such cases to prohibit the re-keeping and caring for animals of any kind."

Animal Friends believe that Somebody else should have long since handed over the horses for adoption because he admitted to the media for lack of money does not feed properly and can not provide them with veterinary care, and he was in previous years but died about 15 horses, of which last month even the three of them, due to malnutrition and parasites. Association arose citizens and organizations interested in hosting a Tuđa has already said he would be "happy to solve" the horses because it is normal for horses "die" during a trotting race, "particularly over the winter."

In addition to associations, and citizens are unanimous in demanding that Tuđi urgently seize surviving horses like to adoption, and to punish him because they knowingly abuse over a longer period, which will not change. Specifically, except that there is reasonable doubt that the multiple violation of the Animal Protection Act, withholding food or water the animals for a long time to torture animals and a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment of up to six months, and animals are confiscated abuser.
