Pony burnt and stapled in her stable on the Wirral
Penny a 16 year old welsh Section B was brought into her stable as usual on Sunday evening ,near Hooton on the Wirral, when her owner Karris returned to feed and sort her on Monday morning she found some really bad sores on her.
Leahurst Equine Practice was called and pictures taken of the sores were forwarded to them . The Vet called the family to say she was very worried about the sores and was going to call to check the pony over. On examination it seems the sores are burns and the pony smelt of burnt hair. The largest burn on her flank is very sore and is restricting the pony from walking .
Poor Penny has a further five burns , two on her rib cage, two on her hip all one side, and one further burn on her opposite side . All the burns have a circular dark patch in them which could be consistent with a cigarette. On further examination a staple was found in one of the burnt areas .
