AN investigation to find who was responsible for a savage attack on an elderly Shetland pony has been dropped by police.
Hovis was mauled by a dog while in his field under Digswell viaduct on Monday, October 31.
The 33-year-old pony was left with such devastating injuries his owners Gary and Patricia Edmonds had no choice but to put him to sleep.
Through the WHT, the Edmonds’ called for witnesses who may have seen anything to contact officers.
A Herts police spokeswoman said the press appeal had resulted in 10 calls to the team working on the case.
Two people were also called in to help police with their enquires.
However, the cases against both were dropped and the investigation has been concluded with the culprits still at large.
