On Saturday 24th October 2010 a horse was discovered, dead and mutilated, by land owners in Sussex. After reporting the matter with the relevant authorities they contacted UK film maker Richard D Hall and Animal Pathology Field Unit investigator David Cayton.

The subsequent field investigation was filmed and incorporated into a documentary film which is now available to watch (for free) at the following link:

It is worth noting the following article which appeared in the Daily Mail at the time of the attack, contrast the Police claim of a "frenzied knife attack" with the complete absense of any blood at the scene, as evidenced by photos and pictures contained in the documentary above.

"Police hunt 'sick' slasher who killed horse in frenzied knife attack

Police were hunting a maniac who stabbed to death a horse in a 'frenzied' knife attack in a field.

The butchered 18-month-old Lagdon cob called Rascal was discovered dead by members of a riding school. Today police and the RSPCA were investigating the stabbing - and had not ruled out the possibility that it had been a 'ritualistic' killing.

Just 10 miles away from the scene in rural Alfriston, East Sussex, nine horses were fed apples that had been spiked with pins and screws last month.

Detective Constable Annie Nash, from Sussex Police said: 'We are working closely with the RSPCA to investigate this mindless act of animal cruelty and find those responsible.

'This horrific incident has caused much distress to the horse's owner and local community but it does appears to be an isolated attack, the motive for which is unknown at this stage.' Two other horses in the same field had not been touched by the killer."
