SPEECHLESS!! was all Houhora Police attached to an image taken in the area of what looked like a Clydesdale horse standing on the back of a moving truck which was posted on the Hauhora Police Facebook Page.
According to posts added to the thread of the photo , Houhora Police said. "This vehicle had been seen at open road speed on State Highway One."
Among other strange vehicular situations involving animals over the Christmas holiday period, Gisborne Police also posted an image of 22 stolen sheep squashed into a van on Christmas Eve.
While many find humor in the images posted by Police the concerns were made clear for the welfare of the animals and other people on the road.
