MEDINA — An abused and malnourished pony rescued from a field Thursday by the Medina County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals died Tuesday evening.
The pony, named “Charity” by SPCA workers, was found with a chain deeply embedded in its neck.
The pony was taken to Ohio State University veterinary hospital, where it was discovered the animal had been pregnant as well. The unborn foal did not survive.
SPCA officials returned to the field Friday on Erhart Road near state Route 57 and found a puppy with a harness embedded in its neck.
Stephanie Moore, executive director of the Medina County SPCA, said the puppy was doing better, and that charges had not yet been filed against the owner.
