Grimmy Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? (244* d) RE: Folklore: Appleby Horse Fair: A Tradition Too Far? 19 Jun 07

Meanwhile, the RSPCA is investigating the death of a horse, which collapsed and died outside the Grapes public house in The Sands, Appleby, in the early hours of June 12 morning. It is believed the horse was abandoned after being run up and down Battlebarrow, a number of times, before collapsing after becoming exhausted.

The RSCPA usually records up to five injured horses a day. However, two horses died at the event, one dying from blood poisoning caused by stress. The owners of both horses failed to come forward.

Ruth, how many deaths do you want me to uncover before you are satisfied?
