AMSTERDAM - A German man tried to take a Shetland pony home in the boot of his car after attending a horse market in the northern Dutch town of Zuidlaren on Tuesday. Police said the pony had been jammed into the boot of the Volkswagen Polo.

The animal had very little room to move and its head was pressed up against the car window, RTL News reported.

The man was fined EUR 220 on the spot and police seized his animal because he did not have an export certificate. Once the man has obtained the licence, he will be allowed to take the pony home.
