An emergency services protocol and fund to help horses caught up in accidents was launched on Tuesday at Buckingham Palace. HRH The Princess Royal presented the protocol which was created by The British Horse Society (BHS) and the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA). The protocol, which came about due to the rising number of horses dying slow, painful deaths in widely reported accidents on the roads, sets out a national standard with procedural guidelines for police and fire services with large animal rescue. The aim of the new code is to minimise delays in injured animals receiving veterinary care, to maximise the chances of a positive outcome for the animal and to ensure the safety of all those involved.
