Pony deaths on Forest roads continue
5:00am Wednesday 5th September 2012 in New Forest
A NEW Forest pony was killed in an accident on the B3054 at Hill Top, near Beaulieu.
The roan mare died just 24 hours after a bay filly was injured on another section of the same road.
She was involved in a collision with a vehicle near Hatchet Pond, despite wearing one of the special collars that reflect car headlights, making ponies more visible at night.
On the same day a chestnut roan filly was injured in a hit-and-run accident at Shepherds Gutter.
