ILPH Life Ban for Causing Unnecessary Suffering

Today, Monday 11th February at Stockport Magistrates Court Deena Khan, of
Stockport, Cheshire, was given, in her absence, a lifetime ban on keeping all
equines, a £100 fine and ordered to pay £300 costs.

Following a complaint in April last year from a member of the public, the ILPH
(International League for the Protection of Horses) visited the livery yard where Khan
kept an 11.2 hh 13 year old roan mare called Rhona.

Comments Paul Teasdale the investigating ILPH Field Officer, "The little mare was in
a pitiful state, her skin was stretched over a prominent spine and pelvic bones and
she was covered in lice. Khan has got what she deserved, it's just a shame that this
poor little pony had to suffer twice before justice finally prevailed."

The mare was taken to the ILPH Recovery and Rehabilitation Centre, Penny Farm, nr
Blackpool to be nursed back to health. She was later removed to a more suitable
location because, due to her lack of handling her nervous disposition manifested itself
in aggressiveness, which proved to be too dangerous for her to say at the Centre.
