Lancashire Chief Constable reassures the British Horse Society that a horse abuse allegation is being looked at
After we caught a Lancashire police officer blowing smoke in a horse’s face, the officer was reported to the British Horse Society.
The British Horse Society notified us that they had contacted the Chief Constable about the damaging video (below) and we have been notified that the Chief Constable has responded, telling the British Horse Society;
“the matter is being looked into and addressed”
So far, there has not been a public response from Lancashire police over the matter which is of some concern as the allegation is over the welfare of animals, and that the officer, Sgt James Cooper, was ‘smoking’ on duty in the presence of animals and on private ‘non-smoking’ property.
