FIRE crews worked to free a pony stuck in mud this afternoon.

Dorset Fire and Rescue’s Poole animal rescue teams and a crew from Ferndown attended following a call made to firefighters just after 4pm with reports of a small pony seen on Wimborne Road East, Stapehill.

On arrival, fire fighters requested assistance in the form of a Land Rover with a load-carrying capacity, which was sent from Christchurch.

A vet and the RSPCA were also in attendance, and the animal was freed using straps and a slide board. 

Fire fighters left the scene at 5.10pm.
