Seven stray horses on ‘death row’

By Dan Walsh

Seven chipped horses have been seized in areas of New Ross and Courtown by Wexford County Council under the Control of Horses Act 1996 and Pounds Regulations 1985 and owners are invited to come forward and claim these animals by next Wednesday, December 23rd, and, in effect, save their lives because after that date the Council will dispose of the animals in accordance with legislation.

Six yearlings, four male and two females, all brown and white in colour, were seized on behalf of Wexford County Council from Hewittsland, New Ross, on December 17th being “stray equine in a public place.”

A three-year-old male, grey in colour, was seized on December 17th on behalf of the Council at the request of An Garda Siochana being “a stray equine in a public place” from the Courtown Road, Gorey.

All seven animals are being held at the ACS Pound at Coombe, Glenville, Co. Cork. The owners can collect the animals subject to certain conditions.
