This week has had numerous reports of the horses in Slate Meadow, escaping & wandering around parts of Wooburn Green & Bourne End.
Several times, local residents have reported the fence posts have been lifted & wire has been cut, which leads to the assumption that this has been a deliberate action. Coincidentally, a few days previously, a notice was put on the gate asking for the horses to be removed within 5 days or they would be destroyed.
While local residents & the police have done their best to catch the horses & tape off open areas of the fence, it appears that someone is still cutting the fence to let the horses out. Some believe that perhaps the horses are being given the chance to escape rather than be destroyed but this action is only putting both motorists & the horses in danger.
Whether the person behind this is trying to help the horses or get rid of them, don’t underestimate the local community where the importance of both Slate Meadow & the horses are concerned!
