Animal control officers and firefighters responded to a report of a colt found lying in a ravine about 11:30 a.m. at Morrison Canyon, said Fremont fire engineer and paramedic Osh Ahmad. The baby horse was stranded in a pool of water about 150 feet down a steep embankment.
Every time he gets up and lays back down, the fracture rubs against a major artery.
If it runs the wrong way and it ruptures that artery, he could bleed to death .
Valentines emergency surgery will cost about $10,000.
The Tri-City Animal Shelter is accepting donations to cover the cost during business hours.
