Valletta commuters were faced with a gruesome sight as a horse collapsed and died in Triq San Franġisk, Floriana.
The horse, which apparently died of a heart attack, collapsed at 13:00 in the middle of the street.
Attached to a karozzin, Gringu, an 11-year-old male, died on the hill near Boffa Hospital.
Earlier this week another horse collapsed in the street after allegedly slipping on an oil slick on the road. This incident led to renewed calls for the karozzin to be banned, culminating in a protest being organised this Saturday by Animal Liberation Malta.
