Customer Rides Horse Into McDonalds in Wales
The RSPCA have revealed that they were informed about an incident in Cardiff, Wales in which a horse owner opted to ride his horse into a McDonalds restaurant in front of a cheering crowd of onlookers.
The small cob pony was ridden into the restaurant before cantering towards the tills before walking around the restaurant, as other diners made their way out of their seats in a bid to stroke the pony.
The video which has since gone viral, has been slammed by animal lovers across the world with one viewer commenting that they believed that the incident was a clear case of animal cruelty after the owner was overheard telling friends “We’re the first people to have a horse in McDonalds.”
This is animal cruelty!
I don’t think this is at all entertaining and not worthy of going viral for.
Also that pony is by far too small for that boy to be riding let alone riding without a saddle.
Commenter on video
A spokesman for RSPCA Cymru expressed that the organisation was “concerned” about the evidence seen within the video.
This would appear a potentially frightening situation for the horse involved and a highly unsuitable environment.
There was also a clear safety risk to both the horse and the public.
