HORSES at a Wirral sanctuary were traumatised when a 20-strong gang of vandals poured petrol over boundary hedges and set them alight.

"Horse Sense Wirral" owners Amy Parker-Radley and Shaun Pirie said the arson attack has greatly distressed their animals.

Amy said: Im hoping there are a few parents out there who will have noticed their kids coming home smelling of burning that night.

I hope they get in touch with police and hand their kids in because Id like to know who did this.

The horses are petrified because of whats happened.

One of them has had a traumatic past and has taken what happened very badly.

A police spokesman said an investigation is underway and house-to-house inquiries have been made at nearby properties.

The blaze was extinguished by a fire crew from Heswall.

The Irby-based sanctuary is home to eight horses. Fortunately, none of them were injured.

The cost of the damage is estimated at around 600.

Anyone with information about the incident, which happened on Thursday, September 29, should call police on 0151 709 6010.

Just horrible!!! Hope they get found out, not that they will get much in the way of punishment which is a shame.


Get yourself some good cctv and a few large warning signs hopefully stop the little s##ts And will not break the bank too much

IF they are found they'll probably be too young to be identified, their parents will get a consultation (who'll probably want to know why the police aren't out catching real criminals & murderers) and that'll be the end of it.

If any do get convicted for reckless endangerment, arson, animal cruelty or trespass, they may get a tagging order which they can wear as a token to brag about and show off to their mates.

However, at the taxpayers expense, there is an alternative which would provide free clothes, free travel & accommodation, free meals, free flights, free adventure trips....
.....temporarily enroll them in the TA for 6 months, pack them off to Afghanistan, put them in hi-viz 'Community Payback' jackets, give them a little bit of training and then send them out defusing any improvised explosive devices or other tricky ordnance the Regulars come across.

If they get back to the UK, they really WILL have something to brag about to their feral 'mates'.

Nahh....just dreaming!

Where did they get the petrol from?

Surely somebody in a petrol station would have noticed a gang of twenty with a jerry can before they turned on the pump, and it won't have been long before either, gangs of young lads would tend not to store petrol.

Just after the riots you had to get a constable to be there at the garage to check you out if you wanted to get petrol in a container.

As regards Manowar1952 post - would you like to have them guarding your back.

Make them the new "forlorn hope"

I wouldn't have them guarding my back or that of my mates, but I'd gladly allow them to walk ahead of them as IED detectors smile
