Crook who conned horse owners into fake cremations

A CONMAN made thousands of pounds taking horse-owners’ beloved animals away for supposed individual cremation but diverted the remains to the knacker’s yard instead.

Wealthy Phillip John Cooper, 68, of John Cooper Livestock Services, picked up the dead animals from Gloucestershire veterinary practices, charging fees of around £900 a time, dumped the carcasses at a rendering plant, where he paid only £35 per horse and then presented the grieving owners with caskets of fake ashes.
