Appeal for information following injuries caused to horse

Alert message sent 10/05/2017 10:06:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

Thames Valley Police is appealing for information following an incident in which injuries were sustained by a horse in Milton Keynes.
At some point between 5pm and 8.15pm on Saturday (6/5), a horse sustained serious injuries to his head, including a cracked skull, the shoulder and to the side of the body while in a paddock in Woughton-on-the-Green.
Investigating officer PC David Spencer, based at Newport Pagnell police station, said: “This was a violent attack on a horse which has sustained appalling injuries.
“Clearly this will have caused a high degree of suffering and distress to the horse, and it is not yet clear as to whether the horse will survive.
“The vet who examined the injuries says it is almost impossible that these were caused accidently as the force used means it is extremely likely the impacts were caused by a human being.
“Access to the paddocks can only be gained via footpaths, and the closest road is the H7 and Newport Road.
“I would urge anyone who saw the attack, or happened to be in the area at the time, or believes they may know the identity of the offender, to contact me on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, quoting reference 43170131614.”
