30 horses have mysteriously died in Thailand’s Northeast yesterday. The Thailand Equestrian Federation is urging horse fanciers not to transport any animals until a cause can be identified. It’s unlikely the situation has anything to do with the Covid-19 outbreak.
10 of the horses had sudden severe seizures before dying and the other 20 repeatedly bucked and jumped before collapsing, dead.
Veterinarians are performing autopsies to try and discover what happened.
The federation is concerned that a shared disease could be the cause, and has asked the Department of Livestock Development and other government agencies to investigate the matter urgently.
