WARNING GRAPHIC PICTURE: Horse put down after being found with horrific injuries near Worcester

A YOUNG gelding had to be put down after being found in a field on Smite Hill in Hindlip with horrific injuries caused by a badly-fitting collar.

RSPCA officers found the horse near the Smite Caravan Site at about 5.25pm on Wednesday, February 12.

It was wearing a blue nylon head collar which had become so tight it had cut into its nose right down to the nasal bone.

The collar was also restricting its breathing and eating so it had become extremely thin.

It is thought that it had been in the condition for some time.

The RSPCA officers called a vet to the scene who made the decision to put the animal to sleep due to the extent of its injuries.

RSPCA inspector Kelly Lake said: “This was such a sad situation and the horse was just too badly injured and in too poor a condition to be saved. “This could so easily have been prevented.

“We are in the middle of a horse crisis, with more than 800 in our care that have been neglected or abandoned and we wouldn’t be in this situation if owners just took some responsibility for their animals.”

A spokesman from West Mercia Police said officers did not attend the scene as they were satisfied the RSPCA officers and the vet had it under control. She added no arrests had been made as a result of the incident and the investigation was being handled by the RSPCA.

Anyone with information on the horse or who its owner may be is asked to call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

God forbid anyone should criticise the owners treatment of this poor animal.
Police did not attend, they`batted it to Rspca` .
As usual,there will be no consequences, the owner just buys or appropriates another `disposable` animal which itself will probably become the subject of another news article in months to come.
This situation will go on forever if all the Authorities remain terrified of tackling a so-called `culture`, `tradition` or `lifestyle choice `which professes a love for horses but which is essentially abusive and sadistic and simply raises a finger to the law and the concept of human decency.

No shortage of nearby `witnesses` then.

This horse should never have been put down. It was young. With care it probably would have made a good recovery. But I daresay the horse rescue didn't want to know if the last scenario with the gypsies tethered horses in Wainwright Road was anything to go by. Somebody owned this horse but we will hear no more about it and it will quietly go away. It makes me suspicious that the police don't want to be involved as allegedly there are certain members of society that they don't like getting involved with and I believe the same applies to the RSPCA. Of course I have no idea who owned this poor little horse.

Well if you don't know anything about it how have you reached your conclusions? Please enlighten us with a few facts. Speculation, rumour and suspicion don't count by the way. The report says nothing about horse rescue, and it was the vet who decided it should be put down, not the RSPCA. I'm no animal lover, but would never want to see one suffer like this.

The owners of this horse and the others tethered by the road in Warndon and the tiny shetland tethered in a rubbish tip standing in its own faeces are owned by the Gypsies on the Offerton Lane site. The Police know this, the council know this and I reported all these animals to the RSPCA two weeks ago and no one even bothered to return my call., The Police have the names and phone numbers for the owners but they seem reluctant to act. This is disgraceful. i was told not to feed or water the ponies because it may jeopardise any case of neglect. Disgusting.

I know more than you do take my word for it but I prefer not to splash this on here. I don't speculate or spread rumours. The horse rescue is in Malvern and they have too many horses to deal with hence not taking this one on. If there had been an owner that cared, they would have paid the vet to save the horse. As this was never going to happen the vet could only make his decision based on whether a horse rescue could take the horse and any operation/care would be paid for by them. It was stated that they already had 800 horses to cope with. So the money to save him wouldn't be there, obviously. And yes, I can tell you are no animal lover.

CJH seems to forget there is one law for gypsies and one for ordinary folk. He obviously didn't read your comment properly. A lot of people (including me) contacted the police and rspca and horse rescue over a long period of time demanding they do something about those poor horses owned by the gypsy guy. They did hardly anything about it that time so why would we think they'd do anything about this horse? Oh and Dogooder didn't let the horses suffer, the owner did that all on his own.

It's horrible to see a creature suffer and of course it's an emotive subject. I know a lot of people did call horse rescue centres, the RSPCA and the police regarding tethered horses in the area. I think it's not a great leap to say that we all know who the animals belong to, but the difficulty the RSPCA face is proving it. They are the ones who will bring a prosecution against an individual for cruelty or neglect, and to do so, they need to prove that the animal's owner has neglected it. But when no one will admit to owning the horse, they can't prosecute.

We might be able to say "it belongs to gypsies" but you can't prosecute the entire camp; and no one there is going to point the finger at any one person. The vet did what he had to do, sad and unfortunate, but necessary.

What's needed to prevent this from happening again? A law change against tethering? It's been discussed here before and generally isn't well received. A change in attitude from the police towards this group in society? Wouldn't necessarily have changed this situation, but perhaps it would not have got this far.

The RSPCA and the horse rescue people should take all these horses off these people. It does seem as if the police and other authorities are scared of them. It's clear who the horses belong to but it seems as if the law about cruelty to animals doesn't apply to them. Being tethered 24/7 is not right.

Ponies at Gypsy horsefairs in 2013 could be had sometimes for 5 for a tenner.
Shove them in the back of a transit van (theyre so small you dont need a horsebox) dump them on a roadside near your caravan site to graze for free, and youve got `toys` for your kids , who can then enjoy riding/trotting/gigg
ing it into illness and injury before getting fed up and leaving them to die in pain unless dumb `townies` rescue them first .
Why does this happen? how can it be stopped?

How about not treating the **** filth responsible as a maligned `Ethnic Group` How about not being afraid of calling a spade a spade, sticking two fingers up to `Political correctness`and just unashamedly see them for exactly what they are?
What are they?
Look very long and hard at the pictures of that poor pitiable pony.
Who could do this? ,

Not animal lovers ,just animal `Keepers`.
No empathy, no capacity for sympathy, for the suffering of the animal, no guilt or remorse, no education , no morals.
Look it up,- DSM IV
Sociopaths.

There should NEVER have been a case for housing gypsies among us.Look at the current reports- metal thefts, caravan thefts, horrific animal cruelty .Gypsies will not bite the hand that feeds them,- they will eat it then demand more.

There is only one way of `sorting` this:-
Remove any and all misplaced legal `obligations` to house and tolerate these itinerant criminal groups and get them back to their Irish Motherland pronto.
No more tortured defenceless animals at the roadside and a S**tload less thefts?
I suppose we would all just have to grin and bear the fact that they would no longer be around to "enrich the cultural mix of our country" (Or whatever other P.C. idiotspeak justified their presence in the first place)

With all the controversy lately about unwelcome immigrants, it seems to have been forgotten that one of the most undesirable, pernicious, aggressive, and well organised criminally active groups are already among us.

No more tortured defenceless animals at the roadside and a S**tload less thefts? I suppose we would all just have to grin and bear the fact that they would no longer be around to "enrich the cultural mix of our country" (Or whatever other P.C. idiotspeak justified their presence in the first place) With all the controversy lately about unwelcome immigrants, it seems to have been forgotten that one of the most undesirable, pernicious, aggressive, and well organised criminally active groups are already among us. joe pike

Well said Joe Pike, it's about time that idiot Gregson (So called Leader Worcester City Council) realised that we do not need another bridge in Worcester but a 15 foot fence round these traveller camps and restrict their movements ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.
Still they will say it's against their human rights, despite the fact that the majority can't read or write!!!!

As most people will agree the only ones who suffer are the animals.

They ALL are.....
by the time there`s been a `Risk Assessment` a `Community Impact Assessment` a`Human Rights Act Review` a Warrant obtained and a Public Order serial assembled, the guilty party is back in the Emerald Isle and the evidence has all gone to a bent scrap dealer,or an animal rendering plant before the first caravan door has been gently and respectfully knocked.
This is not guesswork or fiction.

Do they (the police) do that before they visit anyone in their abode or is it just when they visit a Gipsy site?

If a black guy had done this does it make all black guys bad? no. so see it for what it is, a cruel monster whatever his background. Also Gypsys are NOT travellers. Not everyone who claims to be a Gypsy is one either. I've met plenty of scallies making that claim and they just give true Romanichals and roma a bad name. No horse should be left tethered like that, its not being done for tradition. If they can't provide what the animal needs, then it should be removed. Police and RSPCA need to man up and get tough on this sort of thing.

I think you need to re read the original article,
The poor animal was found on the Smite caravan site (it's a local Gipsy/travellers site)
That's not being politically incorrect.

There is a White pony tethered on the road by the shops in Warndon Villages. Same again head collar too tight and no access to water or shelter. RSPCA response - there is nothing we can do. These "travellers" who contribute nothing to society are above the law. Shame I don't have a horse box because if I did I would do exactly what they do and steal , only if i did it the poor pony would be in a good home. Occasionally this poor thing is made to pull a cart full of their kids so they can get a Chinese. If you approach the pony they ask you for money before you can stroke it! I have never broken the law but believe me if I could house this poor animal I would be there doing exactly what they do on a daily basis and take someone elses property.How about a comment from the owner? Come on you must have stolen a laptop from someone today.

I'm not disagreeing I think it's an issue of cruelty not race and neither side should play that card. Cruelty is not tradition and there is no need to tether a horse especially when your NOT travelling. These debates always decent into a rant about how scummy Gypsy are. Whoever inflicts cruelty in my opinion should be punished. I've always hated seeing tethered horses so close to roads. Change the Law and allow the authorities to remove them unless they have proper care.
