Shot Horse Saved from Death by Licks of Other Horses
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
A horse shot twice with a crossbow by unknown vandals survived after four fellow mares spent three hours taking turns — to lick the wound clean, The Sun reported Tuesday.
The 20-year-old horse, Zeta, was in critical condition after one of the arrows bounced off her rib, while another lodged an inch from her lung as she grazed in a field in the U.K. Owner Jo Young, 39, said the four other horses saved Zeta's life.
"It was really touching that when she was found the other horses in the field were nuzzling her for comfort and licking the wound,” Young said. "They kept the wound clean which would have prevented it from being infected by bacteria. It also helped to stem the blood flow.”
"There was definitely a herd instinct kicking in among the horses. They knew Zeta was in need and they rallied round to save her," he said.
Witnesses saw a group of teenage boys running away from the field at the time of the attack.
The police and RSPCA launched an investigation into the shooting.

Awww, I love this, how amazing. I hope she makes it. Just shows you how smart animals really are - smart in a way that often eludes us mere humanoids.
And GRRRRRRR to those teenage boys - I sure hope they catch them . If they did this heinous crime, they need to face the consequences.

Amazing story. I'm always in awe when animals show each other tenderness. My heart melts when I see Max and Teddy comfort each other when they have "owies."
As for the teenagers, they have serious problems if they did this to a horse.
