    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – This Saturday 62 horses and 4 mules were rescued by members of the security forces patrolling the border with Nicaragua.

    The animals were allegedly smuggled from the neighboring country, many of whom were in unsanitary conditions as some had bleeding wounds, infections or worms, plus bruises and ticks.

    According to the director of the security forces in the north, Allan Obando, the seizure took place in the town of Banderas, Pocosol district of San Carlos, about 15 kilometers from the border.

    Others were blind or extremely skinny, conditions that are not characteristic of horses in the area, but the smuggled animals under these conditions were given to the National Animal Health Service (SENASA).

    SENASA will conduct an investigation to determine the origin of the animals to know what will happen to them. Obando added that they assume at this point the horses were going to be used for human consumption.

    Apparently the animals were brought into the country by a Costa Rican named Artavia, whom the security forces seized and the case is being handled by the prosecution of San Carlos.
