PUYALLUP, WA – A horse with two front ends and no back end has passed away due to complications with its digestive system.
“Poor thing had no way to evacuate its bowels,” said veterinarian Antonia Gasset. “I’m surprised it lived this long, and I’m quite keen to understand how it did.”
The horse, which lived on unincorporated land outside of town, variously went by the names Ulysses and Molasses. Its gender was unknown.
An autopsy has not yet been performed, but Gasset said that the horse’s symptoms were very clearly indicative of intestinal stress from ingested food having nowhere to go. “Not so much a blockage as a dead end,” she said.
