Plus Ça Change: British Ponies To Slaughter

Letter to The Times, September 22nd, 1928:

“I am taking all possible measures to find out whether the Dartmoor ponies are going to Belgium for slaughter, and, if so, how and where they are killed. We have already traced one truckload which was travelling from Friday to Sunday in England.

Miss A. M. F. Coles, International League Against the Export of Horses for Butchery, 11, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, W.C. 2.”

And yes, that’s Ada Cole, founder of what is now World Horse Welfare.
