Another Hit & Run. Pony & Steer Linwood 9th May - Thursday, May 11 2017
The Agister was called to attend an injured steer on the Linwood Road at approximately 7:30 PM on the evening of Wednesday, 9th May 2017.

On the way to the scene of the accident the Agister found a pony with a broken leg. A witness saw a white Audi hit the steer on the bridge the Appleslade car park. The pony was nearby outside the red shoot public house, it is possible that both animals were hit by the same vehicle.

No one has come forward saying they were responsible for either accident.

The pony was humanely destroyed by the Agister. The steer was injured and is lame.

We are offering a reward of up to £1000 to anyone who provides information leading to the successful conviction of the driver or drivers responsible for these accidents.

Anyone with information is asked to ring the Verderers office on 023 8028 2052, or Hampshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 1013 for the steer and 1015 for the pony of 9th May 2015.

Two Escaped Shetlands - Ibsley *FOUND* - Saturday, May 6 2017
Found!!! Thank you so much for your shares and help everybody. Both are home safe and sound and hosed down!!

HIT & RUN RTA - Friday, May 5 2017
Thursday night 4th May 2017 at approximately 10.45 p.m.

On Thursday night a brown and white Shetland mare which was heavily in-foal was involved in an RTA between Crockford Car Park and Norley Wood Crossroads on the B3054 which is the road between Lymington and Beaulieu. The vehicle was travelling towards Beaulieu from the Lymington direction and the driver responsible failed to stop and has not reported the accident.

The evidence shows the poor mare was dragged along under the car for approximately 20 metres. The impact with the vehicle resulted in the mare aborting her foal during the collision. Both mare and foal were found by another driver by a short time after the accident had happened. At that time the foal was still alive. By the time the Agister arrived, the foal had also died.

The Police are in possession of some debris from the vehicle involved, including part of the number plate. The vehicle has been identified as being a Ford.

A member of the public found the mare and foal on the carriageway and reported the accident to an Agister via a friend who lives down the road and knew who to ring.

We are offering a reward of up to £1,000 to anyone who provides information leading to the successful conviction of the driver who was responsible for this accident. Anyone with information is asked to ring the Verderers’ Office on 023 8028 2052, or Hampshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 1058 of 4th May 2017.

ITV Documentary - Vehicle Scams - Wednesday, April 12 2017
ITV documentary series looking to speak to victims of online vehicle scams in the equestrian community.

Wild Pictures are currently making a documentary for ITV 1 exploring online fake vehicle scams. Wild Pictures (www.wildpictures.co.uk ) specialises in producing high quality factual programmes for all the major UK and international broadcasters.

As part of our documentary we are really hoping to speak to victims to help build a picture of the impact fraud has on individuals, their families and their business. At this stage, Wild Pictures are seeking only a preliminary background chat. The information passed on would be treated as entirely confidential and would not constitute an agreement to be filmed or participate in the programme.

We fully understand that this can be difficult to talk about, but would appreciate the opportunity to speak to anyone affected by this crime. We strongly believe that victim testimony can be incredibly important in raising public awareness and therefore hopefully preventing others from being targeted. We want our films to illustrate the human cost of what is often wrongly described as a ‘victimless crime’.

If you are prepared to talk to us on an off- the- record basis, please call Elspeth on 0203 227 4938 or email elspeth@wildpictures.co.uk

We’d like to thank everyone in advance for their time on this matter. If you are happy to speak with us, we look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Elspeth Fisher

New Leaflet Offering Advice for New Forest Drivers from Shared Forest - Saturday, March 25 2017

Shared Forest


The Shared Forest project is working to increase public awareness and understanding of commoning and our animals grazing on the New Forest. We are running a number of campaigns to help people realise the effects that their actions can have: people feeding ponies and donkeys, leaving rubbish on the Forest or allowing their dogs out of control.
At present we are highlighting our campaign to encourage people to drive with greater awareness of the animals on the roads across the open Forest. As part of this, we have published the attached leaflet of 'Advice for New Forest Drivers' which we hope will increase people's understanding of the very special nature of the New Forest roads and the need to always be aware of the presence of free roaming animals - day and night.

Click Here to download & save the full leaflet.

Radio Solent is running a whole week of programmes on animal accidents on the Julian Clegg show starting on Monday. The items will be posted on the Radio Solent website later in the week and there will be a debate on Friday morning.
