The deputy director of Agricultural Development, Juan Enrique García Pérez, detailed that the report was received directly in the municipal office, moving immediately to the upper part of Colonia Delfines.
The mare was of Creole breed, chestnut colored, two years old, trapped in the well in an area that is uninhabited.
The rescue operation lasted about an hour, from the time the report was received until its release, for which a backhoe was used to dig to the side of the well and be able to remove the horse safely and without any injury.
While the actions were carried out, the mare remained hydrated and whey was applied. After the release, rescuers gave the owner recommendations on care. The horse returned home without any physical injuries.
