Polo Ponies Update

April 22nd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Despite reports that 21 polo ponies which died over the weekend were given vitamin shots prior to their match, the state says it still has no conclusive evidence on what killed the horses. Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson says he should know something by the end of the week.

There have been some recognition of a few physical issues, Bronson said. Nothing of substantial amount that would indicate why the horses would have died according to what I was told. However, the blood serology will take us until probably Friday or so, before all of that work is done. Thats a very slow, tedious process as it is in human investigation or animal investigation.

Local and state investigations are underway. Even when the cause of death is known, officials may not be able to determine if the deaths were accidental or not.
