Police are looking to arrest the person behind the sexual assault of a small pony that was found dehydrated and injured, police in the United Kingdom said.
Manchester police said that the 2-year-old pony named Laurell, was found shivering and shaking outside its farm.
20-year-old Ashleigh Butterworth took the 29-inch-tall pony to a veterinarian, who determined that it was raped with an object.
The pony was let out of the barn along with two other horses. The vet determined that the other horses could not have caused the injuries.
The pony was given painkillers to relieve its pain. Butterworth is calling on witnesses to come forward to the police. The incident allegedly happened on Saturday night.
