Horse abuse captured on video leads to horse being taken by authorities

Five men heavily in drink subjected this pony to some horrific injuries. The group have left the pony with spine and leg injuries after their foolish drunk antics. The one year was subjected to five men jumping on her back and crashing over her backwards. The pony is kept at an address in a garden in Tunbridge Wells. Police say they are working with the RSPCA who are investigating the matter
“The RSPCA are investigating the circumstances.”

A spokesperson for the RSPCA said: “We are aware of this situation. Unfortunately we are unable to discuss complaints about specific people and what action may have been taken. We understand how frustrating that is for animals lovers but releasing information could prejudice a future prosecution or could lead to us being fined.

“We are so grateful to people who report suspected animal suffering to us and we would like reassure people we will always look into and, if necessary, investigate any complaints made to us about animal welfare. A lot of the time issues will be dealt with by advice and education and it is not always appropriate to publicise this information for legal reasons.”
