Another three animals have been killed on New Forest roads.

A bay filly was fatally injured in a late-night collision on the B3054 Lymington to Beaulieu road, despite wearing a reflective collar that aims to make ponies more visible at night.

A calf had to be put down after a hit-and-run accident on the B3078 at Black Gutter Bottom, Godshill.

Another hit-and-run incident occurred on the B3054 near Hatchet Mill, Beaulieu, but the pony was unhurt.

A two-year-colt was seriously injured in a collision at Burley Road, Thorney Hill, and had to be put down.

Very sorry to learn of, another, four ponies being hit by motor vehicles in the New a Forest. Cyclists, remember, do not cause injuries to roaming animals, only motor vehicles do. A cyclist would bounce off a pony and be injured with a fall. More cyclists needed.

Certain people can spout their anticycling rubbish on every cycling story, claiming that bikes are harmful to the forest as a whole, then a story like this crops up and they're nowhere to be found!!! AMAZING!!!
