The well-being of some horses in Wellingborough, UK has been the cause of concern recently. A field near the town’s Embankment waterpark has flooded, leaving three horses stranded. The severe flooding left the horses with very little dry land to seek refuge and find nourishment.

Residents have less faith in the organization. Northampton Chronicle reports that Caroline Marshall, a Bozeat resident, said, “I have been ringing most of the horse welfare people in England but because they are Travelers’ horses they won’t get involved. I’ve never seen anything like it, they’re close to drowning. I can’t support the RSPCA any longer. If it’s OK for horses to stay in water, it’s shocking. Ringing them now is almost a waste of time.”
Reportedly, the horses were being monitored by a fire and rescue service as recently as last night.
