Northumberland County Council try to “re-home horses” which were threatened to be “humanely destroyed”


Northumberland County Council “are currently looking into what can be done to rehome the horses” in Embleton, which were threatened to be “humanely destroyed” in a note.

The note (pictured) which originally appeared to have been left by the Northumberland County Council, threatening to “humanely destroy” “abandoned” horses (pictured), has actually been put up by a “private landowner” – not by the Northumberland County Council – SR News understands.

The picture (above) of the note emerged on social media, Twitter and Facebook, and SR News contacted the County Council for a comment.

A spokesperson for the Northumberland County Council said: “The signage was put up by a private landowner, not the council.

“The landowner involved has been instructed to remove the signs immediately.”
