Police appeal for clues after what is being described as a "malicious attack" on a horse near Callington.

The mare called TC, which stands for The Chestnut, had to be put down after suffering severe slash wounds on her leg and the pictures of the injuries are too distressing to publish.

It happened some time after 6pm on Friday night.

12 year old India found her on Saturday.

Now she and family friend Jo are making an urgent appeal for clues.

 
In January, Pirate FM put up a five thousand pound reward to help trace the killer of a stallion at Stithians, but no-one was ever caught.

His owner Dawn Jewell says attacks like these are devastating:

 
Devon and Cornwall Police have launched a criminal investigation into the attack.

They are urging anyone who might have seen something to come forward, quoting log number BN/12/627 and asking other local horse owners to be on their guard and report anything suspicious.
