Praise after horse rescued
FIREFIGHTERS have been praised after rescuing a horse.
Rebel was in her horsebox when she became trapped by a bar.
Her owner Chloe Brooks was unable to get Rebel free and called for help.
Firecrews from Poynton and Knutsford attended an address on London Road North in Poynton on January 10 just before 12pm.
They then sent for expert crews from Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service’s Animal Rescue unit, based in Bollington.
The crew worked with a vet to release the animal.
Rebel’s owner, Chloe Brookes, praised the work of the firefighters.
She said: “Rebel is doing well after her ordeal.
“Thanks so much to the firefighters who helped release her.”
