2nd December, 2008 Grim stuff

The Verderers' statistics for the last week make very grim reading and I cannot imagine how awful it must be for the agisters to be humanely destroying ponies struck by speeding vehicles night after night. It is appalling to learn that one pony was hit so hard it was actually decapitated and it's head has not been found. Needless to say, the cowardly driver didn't stop at the scene or report the accident.

24th Nov ~ Grey filly destroyed ~ Howen Bottom B3078
24th Nov ~ Chestnut mare injured (wearing a collar) ~Longslade View
25th Nov ~ Brown filly destroyed ~ Stoney Cross South
26th Nov ~ Bay/roan 2 y.o. filly killed. ~ completely decapitated. ~ Vereley Hill

I continue to report speeding drivers to the police and to ring the transport department where commercial vehicles are involved.
