Headless pony found on Cornish beach
The body of a headless pony has been discovered on a beach in Cornwall.
Police were alerted by Brixham Coastguard after the pony was found at Pentewan, near St Austell, on Monday.
A police spokesman said it was not known how the pony had got into the sea although it had suffered leg injuries which may have been caused by it trying to get out of the water.
Its head had been severed "cleanly" and may have been hit by a boat propeller. The incident is not being treated as suspicious and is not being linked with other, recent cases of animal abuse.
