Katie Price has shared her grief after discovering her horse died following a collision with a car.
The Loose Women panelist shared a picture of a crumpled vehicle on Instagram and described the accident that involved five horses in total, which escaped their field and charged into the road.
However, Katie was left sickened by an onlooker who took a picture her horse’s head and shared the photo on Facebook.
The 38-year-old reality TV star told her fans: “Last night our friends’ horses including one of ours escaped from their field and ran onto the Road we are devastated.
“We are extremely upset to find out one of our horses was killed last night being hit by a car and don’t appreciate that someone was circulating pictures of our horse dead in the road and put on Facebook.
Katie continued: “Our friends other four horses thank god are alive with a couple of them injured and are still being treated by the vet and will be OK.” “We are in shock still and reminds me again of the time in Argentina when I was involved in a horrific car accident when the car I was in killed two horses that died in my arms.”
Her followers rushed to send their condolences, with one writing: “Big hugs Katie. I know how much Animals mean to you” and another told her, “So sorry for u and your family’s loss and I hope your friends horses all recovery quickly.”
Others hit back at people who criticised the TV star for laying into the person who circulated pictures of her dead horse.
When one user said: “I feel for the driver…. but why are you sharing pictures of someone else’s car? You’re criticising them sharing pics of the horse”
Another replied: “KP has every right to be upset at her horse dying.”
Katie previously revealed she wants to buy her children Princess and Junior, new ponies for their birthdays.
The family live in West Sussex, where Katie keeps her five horses, four goats, four dogs, three pigs, one rabbit, a baby hedgehog and over 100 feathered friends – making her mansion comparable to a working farm.
