Horse cruelty charge denied
A MAN has denied animal cruelty and a number of other charges relating to a horse.
Stuart Clive Moseley, aged 57, of Matthew Street in Swansea pleaded not guilty to causing a horse unnecessary suffering on February 8 on land between Highfield and Waun Road in Loughor.
He also denied failing to protect an animal he was responsible for, namely a horse that he failed to protect from pain, two charges of failing to comply with regulations to dispose of a carcass and three charges of contravening a regulation of the Equine Identification (Wales) Regulations by not having an identification document, failing to apply for said document in the permitted time and failing to give an inspector assistance or information as required.
A hearing was set to take place in front of Swansea Magistrates’ Court on September 24.
Prosecutor Sarah Thyer said the matter could be dealt with by magistrates and Moseley also indicated he wanted it heard at the court.
A date for trial will be set at the next court appearance.
