|Elf the Little Grey Pony - Year One (video) - 11th Jul 2012|
|Some of you will remember Horse Deals reporting on the horrific case of a poor little pony that became known as 'Elf"......|
Animal welfare workers and authorities have been horrified by the sickening abuse of a Shetland pony that was dragged behind a car on Christmas Day.
The male pony sustained severe lacerations to its fore and hind quarter legs in the attack near Toowoomba and its hooves were left torn and bloodied.
Toowoomba Police shift supervisor Sergeant Vern Holcombe said two men driving an older-model brown Holden Commodore sedan were seen leading the pony along a road about 1pm.
"Initially they were not going too fast, but as they got faster the horse kept stumbling and would be dragged along the ground on its chest," Sgt Holcombe said.
"This happened a number of times until a member of the public confronted them. They let go of the rope and left the horse on the side of the road."
