We all dream of a better world, but is there really a chance for things to change for the better without us finally starting to treat animals the way they deserve? I strongly believe that achieving any form of excellency of living depends on what we do for those who can’t speak for themselves.

However, stories of people who go above and beyond for the well-being of all the creatures we share this planet with give me hope that humanity is still alive.

Wild horses are meant to be exactly what their name stands for, wild and free. However, there are often cases where these animals are chained so they cannot escape.

Ovidiu Rosu, a member of the organization Four Paws, which helps animals in need, stumbled upon a chained horse in Romania and he knew he needed to act fast and release the beautiful animal. This man, who happened to be a vet, took off the chains and received the most beautiful thank you ever.

The horse was visibly nervous when Rosu approached it because it didn’t know what to expect. Before he got to the chains, Rosu calmed the animal down and then managed to free it. There were marks on the horse’s legs which spoke of the pain it suffered.

Upon releasing the wild horse, it touched Rosu’s nose as a way of showing gratitude for his good deed. The emotional moment was caught on camera and we are so glad we could witness something as extraordinary as this.

Sadly, chaining wild horses is a common practice in Romania as people believe it would prevent them from roaming freely in the protected Letea Forest.

When these horses were left behind by the Tatars some 300 years ago, their number grew bigger and bigger with each passing year.

“These horses were first brought to Romania around 300 to 400 years ago by the Tatars. The Tatars left many horses behind, and they started roaming freely through the area. Many horses were also set free in 1989, after the agricultural cooperatives in the area broke apart. This led to a huge population boom—by 2010, there were as many as 1,500 horses living in the Danube Delta.”

In order for this cruel practice of chaining horses to stop, the members of the Four Paws organization offered to carry out a program to give contraceptives to mares to help control the numbers. This helped lower the number of horses, but locals still insist on chaining them, a practice animal advocates tend to put a stop to.

Among the rest, Four Paws also offers vaccinations for the wild horses.
