Horse owners on Dartmoor are being warned to check their animals, after a pony was shot in the leg with a cross bow.

The pony was found near Yelverton with an arrow stuck in it's leg on Thursday. Equine Welfare Officers and the pony's owners managed to remove it and treat the animal.

People who may have seen anything or anyone acting suspiciously are asked to contact the police.

South West Equine Protection spokesperson: "We are all very concerned that there is someone out there brandishing a lethal weapon and using it to injure an innocent animal, and then leaving it to suffer unnecessarily. We are now trying to find any information from people that may have witnessed the incident or seen anyone acting suspiciously around the area."

Before and after: Porthleven beach loses its sand

The way in which the winter weather can change our shoreline has been illustrated once again this week.

The casualty this time was the beach at Porthleven where a freak high tide moved vast amounts of sand, leaving nothing but rocks.

That new landscape was short-lived though, as within days some of the sand has been moving back into place.
