The RSPCA is urging people not to bring dogs to Appleby Horse Fair, Cumbria for the annual Gypsy and Traveller event, which starts on Thursday (6-12 June)*.
Despite advising people of the dangers, the RSPCA pulled two dogs out of hot cars again during the 2012 event. Their owners were given cautions.
RSPCA chief inspector Rob Melloy said:
“Dogs shouldn’t be brought to the fair at all, it is quite simply no place for them. Horses can get ‘spooked’
