Animal Accidents and Emergencies In the New Forest

Post by KeithW » Tue Dec 18, 2018 11:47 am

While I was in the council office at Hythe picking up a new parking clock the lady behind the counter gave me a card with emergency numbers for animal accidents and emergencies.
As our prime club activity is spending time in the New Forest we are as likely as anyone to be first on the scene of any incident so it's worth putting one or more of these numbers in your phone, just in case.

999 - Police, for any road traffic accident involving a pony, cow, donkey, pig, sheep, dog, or deer. You are required by law to report any injury on the road to any of these.

02380 282052 - Verderers Office, Mon-Fri 9am-5pm, for any sick, injured or distressed pony, cow, donkey, pig or sheep.

03000 674600 - Forestry Commission, 24 hours, for any sick, injured or distressed pony, cow, donkey, pig, sheep or deer.
There's nothing worse than a reformed former derailleur owner..............
