New stray horses laws considered by Welsh government


The Welsh government has told BBC Wales it is considering new laws to deal with the problem of stray horses.

It follows widespread reports of unscrupulous owners breeding huge numbers of animals they can not afford to keep or feed.

It leads to a problem known as fly-grazing.

There are claims one breeder of Gypsy cobs is allegedly using threats and intimidation to take over family farms, so his horses have somewhere to graze.

Nick Palit has been investigating this story for BBC Wales Today over the past few months.
