A horse used to draw one of the city's carriages was killed yesterday morning at around 9.45am in Dalt Murada. It would seem that the horse suddenly bolted, crashed into a wall and was killed and that the cause of this was that it panicked when a tourist went to pet it.

Sources at the town hall were saying that they didn't know the exact causes of the fatal accident, while the local police started an investigation to find out precisely what happened. Their initial investigations ruled out any question of neglect of the animal.

The horse was taken away on a truck belonging to the city's services agency Emaya.
