31 horses and 6 donkeys were evacuated in critical condition from a makeshift horse ranch illegally set up in Ramat Gan following an administrative order issued by the mayor. Regardless of the horses’ bad condition, they were still used for riding with complete disregard for their medical situation. The animals were transferred to a veterinary clinic for an examination. The city will demand that the ranch owner cover the evacuation and treatment costs.

The Israel Police evacuated a makeshift horse ranch this morning (Tuesday) that was illegally set up in Ramat Gan and held 31 horses and 6 donkeys. Many of the animals suffered different physical injuries and were malnourished. The evacuation followed an administrative order issued by Ramat Gan Mayor Yisrael Zinger.

The horses and donkeys were being held near railroad tracks close to the Ramat Gan and Bnei Brak border. A month ago, there was a train accident near the ranch that killed 4 horses. With the arrival of officials to the ranch, besides the animals being found in poor condition, a body of a horse was also discovered.

All the horses and donkeys have been evacuated to a safe Agriculture Ministry shelter, where they will be examined by a veterinarian and receive medical treatment. The Ramat Gan Municipality claimed that in the past, the ranch owner took over various plots across the country. “He was summoned for a hearing and received an evacuation order,” said Shimon Shomroni, the city’s Director of Security and Enforcement. “The city intends to sue him for the evacuation expenses as well as the cost of maintaining the horses in the shelter, which sums up to hundreds of thousands of shekels.”
