A young pony has been found with severe legs wounds in Lincolnshire.
The piebald filly, which had severe injuries to her hind leg, was discovered near a remote country lane near Grantham yesterday.
Despite hoping to save her, on advice of the vet who was present, the pony was euthanised to end her severe pain and suffering.
The pony was not microchipped and was found with no identification. Anyone with any information about her owner is urged to contact the RSPCA.
It seems the poor pony was then dumped in a remote location where she would not be found, and left to die in severe pain. The injury was very large and clearly visible, so it’s likely she was been kept in a private location until now, as we’re sure members of the public would have reported her terrible wound immediately upon seeing it.
