A horse was raced to death and abandoned in the middle of a residential street after collapsing.

It had been driven through the roads of Cork in Ireland while attached to a ‘sulky’ – a type of cart often used for harness racing.

The horse was discarded after it collapsed and the group racing it walked away laughing, according to witnesses.

The animal was later removed by a JCB tractor and the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are now investigating, reported the Metro.

Inspector Lisa O’Donovan said it was not an isolated incident. She said: ‘It is not acceptable that you have young kids going out there driving a horse into the ground and then just walking away.

‘A few people said to me that they were laughing as they went which I think is even more horrifying. There is no remorse, guilt. The horse is of no more value to them than anything else.’
