Illegally Tethered Horses to be Removed in York


9:35am 3rd April 2013

Horses which are illegally tied to the side of the road in York will be taken away and re-homed. A horse baliff is going to be employed by the city council to keep the roads clear. It's hoped extra horse grazing land can be provided at travellers' sites instead.

Councillor Dafydd Williams, City of York Council’s Cabinet Member for Crime and Stronger Communities said: “An effective solution to the matter of illegally tethered or straying horses has been carefully considered with a broad sweep of stakeholders. Their support and co-operation means that, should the protocol be agreed, this approach will benefit the animals, road users, horse owners and land owners who may be regularly affected.”
