A huge animal rescue operation has taken place in Buckinghamshire after RSPCA officers found scores of neglected horses, ponies and donkeys.



Thirty-two horses were found dead at the site in Amersham on Friday and three other animals had to be put down.



RSPCA staff and vets described the scene as the worst they had ever encountered, one telling BBC News "it was utterly horrific".



The other 80 animals at the site have been transferred to horse sanctuaries.

Wow...that is awful. I remember something similiar happening in Houston a few years ago. It wasn't nearly this many horses though. People disgust me.

I don't understand how people can be so heartless.

It makes me sick knowing what people are doing to animals, this is horrible. At least they were found.
