PUBLISHED: 18:00 12 April 2017
The RSPCA is investigating after two horses died of strangles – a contagious infection which affects a horse’s breathing.
An RSPCA inspector visited a field in Bleadon on April 2 after receiving calls from the public about welfare concerns.
An RSPCA spokesman said: “When our inspector visited the field, the dead horses had already been removed.
“Our inspector was accompanied by a vet who confirmed on this instance there were no clear breaches of the law.”
Advice was given to the owner of the horses about preventing strangles and the RSCPA has said it will monitor the situation to ensure advice is followed.
