A horse was mutilated in a nasty attack yesterday (Thursday) in Weston-super-Mare.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary has launched an appeal for information after the pony was tied up and attacked between 9am-5.30pm.

The animal was in a stable on open land near Weston General Hospital, off Grange Road, when it was mutilated.

A police spokesman said: “Someone entered the barn, tied up and attacked the pony.

“There appears to be no motive for this.

“An investigation is underway by the local neighbourhood policing team.

“Anyone who has any information is asked to call 101 and ask to speak to PS 4245 Batchelor, quoting reference number 52171239288.”
