HORSE ALERT: Police are warning horse owners that their animals could be getting marked out for future theft.
A call to be vigilant has been issued after a horse, which was loose in a field, had its mane plaited.
“This was done without consent and there is a concern that there might be a hidden message and the animal may have been marked to steal at a later date,” said a police spokesman.
The incident was reported on January 11 and a piece of twine was found tied to the field gate.
Horse owners are being urged to check their animals on a regular basis and to report anything suspicious to police on 101.
