A pony suffered severe burns after she was set alight in a "horrific and calculated" attack, the RSPCA said.

The animal charity and police were hunting the offenders after the incident in Stapleford, Nottinghamshire.

spokeswoman said the four-year-old grey Welsh pony, named Baby Boo, was
in her field off Mill Road on Sunday when the attack happened.

The terrified animal was found by her owner at about 6.30pm, after breaking through a metal gate to escape her attackers.

She suffered severe burns to her back and rear.

It is thought an accelerant such as petrol was poured over the horse before she was set alight, the RSPCA spokeswoman said.

Baby Boo was taken to a specialist veterinary hospital where she will remain for at least two weeks while her burns are treated.

RSPCA inspector Sarah Gardner, who is working with Nottinghamshire Police to investigate the incident, said: "This was a horrific and calculated attack.

"I can't imagine what sort of people would be capable of doing this,
but clearly we need to find out who they are to prevent them from
attacking other animals."

The RSPCA said those found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering
to animals could face a maximum six-month prison sentence and/or a
£20,000 fine.
