Drama as three horses killed on road between Beja and Serpa

Three horses were killed outright after wandering on to a busy road in the early hours of this morning.
Miraculously, the van driver who hit them escaped unharmed, but the carnage was just the latest in a long line of horrors involving loose horses on the nation’s roads.
Only days before the accident on the EN260 between Beja and Serpa, another horse had collided with a car, resulting in the vehicle having to be scrapped.
In both incidences, all the horses have been found to be without microchips and no owners have come forwards.
Reporting on the accident, Jornal de Notícias warns this is a section of road notorious for grazing horses.
