Two unregistered stray horses which were galloping unsupervised in the Country Park were put down following a four hour attempt by the Police and the District Council to capture them, Three Rivers District Council has confirmed. Rebecca Emmett, Head of Regulatory Services, explained why police and council workers felt the move was necessary. She added: “The horses were an immediate danger to dog walkers and to children in the park and were at risk of straying onto the A41, Woodside Road, East Lane or College Road. The decision to put down the horses was made reluctantly in the interests of the safety of the public. This was undertaken quickly and humanely under careful supervision.” TRDC say attempts were made to find the horses owners but they have not yet come forward Did you see what happened? Email
