Protest outside horse killing case

2010-06-02 12:08

A handful of animal lovers picketed outside the Somerset West

magistrates court where five youths appeared for allegedly killing a retired

cart horse.

They allegedly fashioned a bridle of barbed wire and rode the

horse, Bukshi, to death, stabbing him in the sides and stomach to keep him

moving. Bukshi was found dead 50m from his home.

The case was postponed today to June 10 as the defence attorney was

off sick.

Two of the accused were out on bail while the other three remained

in custody. They are expected to plead at their next appearance.
