RSPCA Cymru has launched an appeal for information after the suspected stabbing of a shetland pony in the Penycae area of Wrexham.

On Wednesday July 29, the owner of the pony – named Casper – found the animal, at Plas Bennian Road, with a deep wound on its shoulder. It is believed the injury was sustained between 10pm on 28 July and 12.15pm the following day.

RSPCA Inspector Kia Thomas said:

“Whilst the cause of this nasty wound is unknown, we are concerned that this may have been the result of an intentional stabbing.

“If anyone has any information about how this poor shetland sustained this injury, we would urge them to get in contact with the RSPCA’s Inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.” 

Calls to the Inspectorate appeal line are treated in confidence.

Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, it is an offence to cause an animal unnecessary suffering; carrying a maximum sentence of up to six months custody and/or a fine of up to £20,000.
