Two horses boarded up nearly out of sight in a Miami-area stall have been rescued after months of isolation during which they survived by eating wood and their own feces. They were housed within sight of but without access to a water source. "It was almost like they were being nailed into a coffin to die," said Jeanette Jordan, president of the South Florida SPCA. In another particularly egregious case, a beagle mix with burns and severe skin lacerations was treated by veterinarian Maria Serrano, who was credited with saving the dog's life.
