Horse insurance: Men bailed over animal death

Horse insurance policyholders have been told that four men have been bailed following an investigation into the death of an animal at a North Stifford farm.

The Enquirer reported that the mount was discovered on May 9th at the premises and subsequently passed away as a result of its injuries.

A 31-year-old man has been released on bail until July 19th, but it is understood that he has been cleared of being the person seen in the horse's barn around the time the injuries are thought to have been inflicted.

Two others, a 23-year-old man from South Ockendon and a 29-year-old man from Grays, were released on police bail until June 13th, while a 30-year-old man has been released on bail until July 20th after his arrest on suspicion of criminal damage.

Last month, it was reported that a mare in Surrey was injured in a crossbow attack, resulting in two wounds.
