Update on the “Horse in Bedford County”

Bedford County Horse

Bedford County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control continues to monitor public concerns with a horse on Forest Road in Bedford County. The owner is complying with requirements from BCSO Animal Control as related to the Code of Virginia. The owner has also followed recommendations from a veterinarian specializing in equine care that is also familiar with the horse. There has been an extraordinary amount of calls expressing concerns about this horse based on a post on Facebook. We are fully aware of the public concerns and want to further emphasize the time the calls are taking communication officers away from the routine incoming administrative and emergency calls. Be assured every effort is being given to this complaint.
