Report from Ralph Barnett
Don't know if you've heard anything, but apparently there's been a couple of incidents reported to Tayside Polis recently (June and this week) of a young Clydesdale horse suffering injuries/wounds while in a field at Craigton Farm, near Monikie.
Haven't a clue what the nature of the injuries is - could be anything from neds with airguns to accidental damage on barbed wire - but I'll see if I can find out any more. You will, of course, know that Monikie is a bit of a "hot spot" for cat sightings this year - I've attached recent cuttings from the Courier - so putting 2+2 together I've come up with 5. This is what's going in tomorrow's paper.
Tayside Police have been called to investigate injuries to horses at an Angus farm. Police were called to Craigton Farm, Monikie, today by the farmer after a horse there was found to be wounded. It is the second time in little over a month that police have been called to the farm concerning injuries to horses. They are continuing investigations into an incident that was reported to them on June 26, when a one year old Clydesdale horse was reported to have suffered an injury to a hind leg. The horse was examined at the time by a vet and was not found to be seriously injured.
