Horse rescued from fire

Horse rescued from fire

image1A Vieux-Fort horse owner was reportedly left puzzled after person/s set fire to a horse shed just over two weeks ago.

The incident occurred at Coco-Dan, Vieux-Fort between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. on December 22, 2016.

A local thoroughbred, two-and-a-half-year-old colt named Surprise, was in the shed when it was set ablaze,  a source told St. Lucia News Online.

The horse was rescued without harm.

“Luckily, a friendly local resident was passing by and saved it before the fire got worse,” the source added.

Other residents joined in to extinguish the blaze “by way of a bucket brigade using water from the nearby beach”.

According to the source, the horse owner is wondering why would someone want to kill his horse and destroy his property.

  1. The owner of this property is a known supporter of the SLP and an avid supporter of the DSH project. He was chastised by the SLP when he was invited and attended the sod breaking ceremony of the proposed horse track. Subsequent to the ceremony the chastisement became more profound. Hold tight Brother. You are doing it for your very ambitious son and your grandchildren. You are not like these waste of time guys who are trying to keep VFort in the dark for they own personal and parasitic need.
