A bay stallion has been stolen from a Norfolk horse charity.

Captain, who had been cared for by the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) at Snetterton for the past seven months, was taken from a field in Sallow Lane some time between 4.30pm on Sunday May 28 and 9am on May 29.

Officers believe that the horse, which is brown and stands at 15.1hh, may still be in the Norfolk area.

Tony Tyler, director of operations for ILPH, which looks after hundreds of unwanted and rescued animals, said horse thefts were “very rare.”
