Rolling Stones: They shoot up horses, don't they?

The suggestion that the fate of a Rolling Stones gig hangs on an extraordinary amount of horse tranquillisers isn't that unusual - we're given to understand that's normally part of Keith's rider.

When they play Serbia, though, plans to drug 300 horses to stop them being scared by the noise of the perpetual tax exiles is causing upset. Animal welfare bodies are demanding the gig be moved, rather than force the animals to be medicated needlessly. The Serbian equivalent of the RSPCA is hoping to appeal to the band's better nature.

We know, we know. But they're still going to try.
