Dyfed-Powys Police is appealing for witnesses after a pony was shot in the neck with a crossbow.
The pony was extremely distressed when it was found near the A4059 between Storey Arms and Hirwaun.
A member of the public came across the pony and contacted Welsh Pony Rehoming and Rescue Charitable Trust. Due to the suffering of the mare, it was approved by a vet for it to be put down.
Police are appealing for anyone with information on who might be responsible for this to contact them quoting crime reference: DPP/1941/29/09/2020/02/C
This can be done online: bit.ly/DPPReportOnline, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone on 101 or by text:

Before you go...
WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
