BODMIN, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 21: A Bodmin pony grazes on Bodmin Moor, as Faye Stacey, (not pictured) a pony welfare officer for the charity South West Equine Protection (SWEP) inspects their condition on February 21, 2011 in Bodmin, England. SWEP is calling on the authorities in Cornwall to recognise that there is a serious problem with the welfare of the Bodmin ponies. Due to the sale price of the ponies plummeting the charity is concerned that their owners are now failing to care for them in an adequate way. Whilst the animals are semi feral the failure of the authorities to act against the owners has resulted in five ponies being found dead in the last three weeks and others being found emaciated and in a poor condition due to starvation.
