A CRANE had to be used to help lift a dying shire horse to its feet after it collapsed at the "best ever" Camborne Show.

A fire crew from Camborne was called to the event at Coombe on Saturday at 4.30pm to rescue the animal, which died the next morning.

Following the incident a spokesman for Camborne-based Clifton Villa veterinary surgery, which provided two vets at the show, said: "Heat is an important factor in making sure that the welfare of animals is considered."

Despite the drama, treasurer David Trease said the show had been a huge success, although he believed numbers were slightly down on last year because of the hot weather.

"It was a great day," he said.

"Last year had a record attendance because it was a dry day after so many wet days. This year I think the heat put the frighteners on some people. You can't win."

Chairman Colin Webb added: "I had the opportunity to talk to three judges who described it as one of the best ever agricultural shows they had ever seen.

"I think this was down to the magnificent site and the natural beauty of the showground.

"It was a great success with the number of exhibitors up in most sections apart from the horse section, which was down due to another show that clashed with ours."

    Oh, yes. If It's too hot people have the choice of staying away. Not so for the animals. They are just free to drop dead. Why no prosecutions for this cruelty?
