Pony insurance: Animals found dead in Newport

Two animals have been found dead in a Newport field, prompting RSPCA officers to appeal for information from local pony insurance policyholders.

The South Wales Argus reported that two grey and piebald mounts were discovered, alongside a living but severely malnourished animal, on land near Usk Valley Walk in Langstone.

Due to the extremely poor condition the third mount was found in, the decision was taken to euthanise it to stop further suffering.

Representatives for the RSPCA are now trying to find out the background of an additional 35 ponies in the region, which may have been left by their owners.

Welfare inspector Emma Smith told the newspaper: "It seems that these ponies have been dumped in Langstone and some have already died as a result of the owner's callous neglect and cruelty."

Earlier this month, pony insurance customers were asked to help trace the owner of an animal that was found with painfully overgrown hooves in Devon.
