The body of a small horse has been dumped at the entrance to a field off Bradmore Lane, Water End.

It’s the second dead horse to be left lying at the side of the lane in a little more than a year.

The small, brown horse, which had been left close to the bridge over Mimmshall Brook, was reported by a local resident on Sunday 8 March.

A spokesperson at Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council said the local authority was arranging for the removal of the dead animal.

The hind legs of the horse had been tied with blue rope. Its head, legs and lower body were covered in mud.

In January last year a dead horse was dumped at the Brookmans Park end of Bradmore Lane.

There are strict government guidelines for the disposal of dead animals.

Anyone who owns a horse that dies should contact one of the government-approved agents, or contact the National Fallen Stock Company.
