RSPCA Inspector Steven Craddock said: “We believe they were dumped around teatime on April 22.
“If anyone saw a vehicle or horse box in that lane around that time and took a note of the registration number we would like to speak to them. “
Why worry about the car registration? Aren’t horses supposed to be registered? Check the tattoo or microchip!
Bit odd, then, that the RSPCA are so keen on dog micro chipping, eh? Surely it’s going to suffer from the same drawbacks?
“It is unbearably sad to see an animal given so little care that they die giving birth – the mare must have suffered greatly and we would like to find the person responsible.”
What a shame you don’t have a large network of uniformed staff with quasi-legal powers who could go out and check that people are complying with the law and prosecute them if they don’t…
What’s that? You do?
