In a distressing video, an old carriage horse lies on the street as a man beats him hard with a whip, trying to get the horse to stand up. Each time the whip hits him, the horses flinches, but he isn’t able to — or doesn’t want to — get up.
Eventually, a few people pull the horse back up to a standing position. But this isn’t much of an improvement — the man with the whip simply adjusts the horse’s reins (which are still attached to a carriage containing passengers), preparing to make him work again.
An animal lover took this video in Jakarta, Indonesia, last month where the horse, Chester, had spent the last 10 years pulling a carriage. They sent the footage to the Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN), an organization that helps both wild and domestic animals in Indonesia.
