Pony Deaths 'Due To Fly-Tipping'
7:01am 30th April 2014
Pirate FM has learnt three ponies have died on Bodmin Moor in a week - and it could be down to fly tipping.
Police fear gardeners are dumping waste for the animals to eat not realising some of the plants are poisonous to them.
They are asking anyone who sees something to call 101 straight away.
Becky Treeby from Southwest Equine Protection told Pirate FM there is a narrow window to save them: "Unfortunately horses have a very complex digestive system. So, once that poison has gone into their stomachs it takes two hours from the moment they digest the plans to their death.
"It's a very sad and painful way for them to go.
"Well meaning members of the public go up with their bags of grass clippings and garden waste that they've done in the nice weather - and put it up on the moors for them.
"What they don't realise is it's highly poisonous."7:01am 30th April 2014
