Gallery: Siberian huskies at home in Thetford Forest

IT could almost be a scene from the wintry plains of their native Siberia rather than here in East Anglia.

But these husky dogs have felt right at home in the recent cold snap.

The pack can regularly be found thundering through the paths of Thetford Forest, under the guidance of their owner Sally Forstal.

She said: “My parents bought a pair of Siberian huskies in 1969 so they have been part of my life for a very long time.

“Thetford Forest is a brilliant place for working the dogs.

“They absolutely love it and its very important for them as a pack - and very exciting as well. Huskies are very rewarding to work with, very bright and very sensitive.

“They are always a challenge and a lot of fun.”

Sally is campaigning against Government plans to sell off national forests.

“It would be a huge tragedy and a massive mistake,” she said. “We cannot let it happen.

“The consequences for wildlife and flora and fauna are unthinkable. Quite apart from all the different activities that depend on forests. We must really stop it.”
