Is the Little Pony Dead Yet?
Help Wanted... Once there were two ponies, now there is one? I am told the other pony died?
At the corner of Pound Hill Road and Bay Ridge Road in Northport lives a sickly little pony. It looks to be undernourished, under exercised, and uncared for. It smacks of a case of pure neglect.
The little pony lives in filth. There is little attention to basic sanitation. The little pony finds food by picking up straw, and grass that lay under, over and around its own urine and droppings.
I am told it is sick (does anyone wonder why?) and being treated. The pony’s ribs are now showing. The animal’s belly area is thin and somewhat sucked in.
Our Animal Welfare officials are circling the wagons. Their paper work is in order relative to the complaint, but their actions are passive with regard to the health of the animal and fully taking charge. The little pony should be removed from its current environment. It is that simple.
At your place of worship or social gatherings this weekend discuss this story. Drive by and take a look. Honk your horn so the little pony knows there may be help coming and the owner knows people are concerned about the neglect and conditions.
Northport’s Animal Control Officer can be reached on her cell number at 322-3237 or home 348-2042. Or call the Northport Town Office. They are aware of the case and equally passive.
There is only one question to ask… Is the Little Pony Dead Yet?
