Parts of dismembered horse found in Hampshire

More body parts of a horse have been discovered near to a railway line in Hampshire.

RSPCA inspector Penny Baker had been investigating the original discovery of a dismembered horse found in Burseldon near Southampton on Tuesday 4th March.

A head, torso and leg were originally found.

But more body parts, including a hoof, leg and pelvic bone, of what is thought to be from the same horse, were found near Satchell Lane in Hamble.

Inspector Baker believes the latest remains may have been dumped after media reports of the original discovery.

She said, "It looks like someone has just driven up and thrown them over the fence. The smell was quite strong and I'm sure someone would have come across them if they had been there for more than a week."
