Vets ‘could be called in for stray horses’

Posted on | 0 Responses

The skills of vets and others with equine insurance could be needed in order to help with the removal of stray horses from the streets of Tipton.

Strays have been walking around the roads in the town and councillors have called in bailiffs to help with moving the animals, the Express and Star reported.

However, they have been having difficulty with catching the horses and may have to call in the help of professionals to stop the animals from straying too close to busy roads.

"We are hoping to talk to the staff and vets at Dudley Zoo, and try and find a way to sedate the horses in order for us to remove them from the roads," explained councillor Derek Rowley.

Another location where horses will not be seen on the streets is in Oxford, after the local authority ruled against allowing horse-drawn carriages to be used in the historic town.
