    Driver fined for cramming pony in hatchback

    Police find Shetland pony in Volkswagen Polo (so does that make it a Polo pony?????????)

    Updated: 11:38 a.m. ET Oct. 21, 2004AMSTERDAM -

    Dutch police fined the driver of small hatchback car after spotting a Shetland pony crammed in the back, police said on Thursday.

    “The small Shetland pony had no room to move and his head was pressed against the window,” police said. A woman on the back seat held the animal by a rope.

    Police fined the 42-year-old German driver of the Volkswagen Polo 220 euros ($277.1) for improper transport of the animal, just bought on a local Dutch market.

    “Once the driver has obtained an export certificate, the pony can go to Germany,” police said.
