Woman to appear at Boston Magistrates' Court accused by RSPCA of kicking and hitting horse at Gunby
A woman will appear in court accused of kicking and hitting a horse.
It is the first hearing in a prosecution case brought by the RSPCA against Sarah Moulds from Somerby following an incident on November 6 near ‘The Drift’ in Gunby in Lincolnshire where a grey pony, known as Bruce, was allegedly subjected to ‘unnecessary suffering’.
The woman is accused of two offences under the Animal Welfare Act 2004.
These include kicking and hitting the horse and not protecting an animal, for which she was responsible, from pain, suffering and injury.
The woman is due to appear before Boston Magistrates’ Court on Monday (January 31).
