Dying pony dumped in Dunbar field
The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a young pony was found dead in a field in East Lothian after being abandoned.
The animal welfare charity was alerted when a member of the public spotted the black and white male cob-type pony lying down in distress in a field between the A1 and the A1087 just outside Dunbar last month.
A post mortem examination has revealed the six-month-old pony died of septicaemia and had not received the veterinary attention and proper diet he required.
Senior Inspector John Toule, who was called out to the scene, said: “We are treating this incident as a case of cruelty and we are very keen to trace this pony’s owner.”
