Photo of the Day: Saving Horses from Wolves
(AP) — In this photo taken on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013, Simion Craciun, a Romanian farmer, poses with a horse at Sieu Sfantu, in Romania's central region Transylvania.
The name of his farm translates roughly as “Saving Horses from Wolves.” But for Simion Craciun, the real predators are from the nearby slaughterhouse. When word has gotten to him that a horse is being sold to the abattoir in the poor northern Transylvania region where he lives, he has rushed out to offer more money and bring the creature back to his picturesque plot where tourists come for riding lessons, he said.
