Cumbria owners in RSPCA probe hand over two more horses

HORSE owners at the centre of an RSPCA probe have signed two more of their horses over to the charity.

Anti-animal cruelty inspectors began investigating the two female owners after one of their ponies was found dead on January 10.

Advice was given to the pair before two of their horses were seized under police assistance just days later.

Two more horses in their care, which had been moved to new stables, were signed over to the RSPCA earlier this week.

RSPCA spokesman Leanne Plumtree said: “A horse that was seized by police on veterinary advice on Friday, January 10 has been signed over to the RSPCA by its owners.

“The horse was seized along with a yearling which was found collapsed and, after taking a turn for the worse, put to sleep by the vet overseeing its care to end its suffering.

“Two other horses belonging to the same people have also been signed over.

“They will now be assessed by our equine rehoming co-ordinator.”

The investigation is ongoing.
