Officers who responded to reports of a horse being shot in a field near Kemnal Road, Chislehurst, have ruled out a number of weapons.
On Friday, July 8, Met Police were called at around 3.30pm to reports that an animal had been shot.
The horse was found dead when police arrived.
Its cause of death is still unknown, and police are still trying to find out what weapon may have been used.
A Met Police spokesperson said: “Police have ruled out the use of a shotgun, or handgun or similar firearm as causing the death.
“Investigations continue into what type of weapon was used.”
A man was seen acting suspiciously in the field earlier on that day.

She is described as a white woman aged between 45 and 50-years-old with short brown hair.
She spoke with a European accent and was walking a small grey/black dog at around 2pm.
