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
