Petition Make feeding horses/ponies and livestock a specific criminal offence
A lot of owned animals including horses and ponies have special diets or are prone to illnesses caused by the wrong food.
Livestock if fed the wrong food can get ill and or die and the livelihood of farmers could be at stake.
Horses and ponies can and HAVE choked or got seriously ill resulting in death, because of passersby 'going to feed the animals'.
The wild ponies of the UK are at risk just as much from being wrongly fed. Resulting again in illnesses and death.
We have tried signs and fences to no avail.
The Government needs to take action and stop unnecessary deaths of animals.
