- Two men in their 30s and a 15-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty
- They were released on police bail until March 13
- Anyone with information which could help the investigation should call Surrey Police on 101
Specific details of the attack have not been released, but Surrey Police added:
Thankfully, incidents of this nature are rare in this area, however, Nutfield is a small, close knit community and no doubt this offence will have some impact on the residents but we will do all we can to reassure local people.
A teenage boy has been arrested along with two men after a horse was killed in a horrific attack. The animal had to be put to sleep by a vet on Monday afternoon after what police describe as a "prolonged daylight attack" in Nutfield Marsh in Surrey.
