Beware of the horse

A US court is to hear a case that could result in horses being classified as a "vicious" species. A boy's parents sued a farm owner in the state of Connecticut after he was bitten by a horse named Scuppy in 2006. A lower court said Scuppy belonged "to a species naturally inclined to do mischief and be vicious". The state supreme court will now hear an appeal. If upheld, the lower court's ruling could make horse ownership uninsurable, say equine industry figures. Horse farmers say that could make it difficult to pair horses with children, and damage a $221m a year industry.
