SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A horse found frozen to the ground last week in a patch of mud has died after making what a sanctuary thought was a recovery.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1aknxEi) that caretakers at the Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary for Horses were stunned by Saturday’s death.

The 1½-year-old filly Elsa was hypothermic and nearly dead when passers-by discovered her and her mother earlier this month in in Enoch.

The mother, named Anna by caretakers, is still alive. Both horses were starving before they were rescued Jan. 2.

Veterinarians told the sanctuary that the young horse was taking pain medications but suffered too much to survive.
