The dead horse

The dead horse

First published in News

COUNCIL chiefs say they are doing all they can to get rid of a dead horse from a stream at a Hampshire beauty spot.

The horse is in the water next to Lakeside Country Park in Eastleigh and was found last Thursday, but it has not yet been removed.

The land where the horse was found is privately owned and Eastleigh Borough Council is trying to contact the owners to gain permission to remove it.

A spokesman for the council said: “The council is making arrangements for the horse to be removed. It is not seen as a risk to public health and as such we have no formal powers to deal with it.”

I think you'll find that the horse was removed by Animal Welfare officers from Eastleigh Borough Council and Hampshire Fire & Rescue's Animal Rescue Unit at 5pm yesterday evening.
