Dept of Ag and Cork Gardaí discuss removal of stray horses

The lands surrounding the Apple plant in Hollyhill, Co. Cork are now home to at least 17 stray horses, with Dept of Agriculture officials and Gardaí in discussions over their removal.

There are an estimated seventeen stray horses on private lands near the Apple plant in Hollyhill, Co. Cork, with numerous requests made for their removal.

The horses have been grazing on the lands for a number of weeks now, as reported by echolive.ie, and one horse even died in recent times. The horses are currently situated on lands which have been rented for farming practices, though this is now in jeopardy due to the presence of the animals.

All of the horses on the land are untagged, which is now against the law. All horses in Ireland must also be microchipped and have a valid passport/identification papers. Any stray or unlicensed horses must be either seized or destroyed by law.

In the past five years, almost 260 horses have been seized in Cork alone. 200 of these animals were put down, with only 18 rehomed and 34 reclaimed.

The Department of Agriculture have confirmed that they are aware of the stray horses, whilst also confirmed that discussions into the horses’ removal remain ongoing with local Gardaí.
