Question about English (US)

I read an article about a horse roadkill. And I have two questions about the sentences.

A runaway horse has died after being hit by a car despite desperate efforts by police and passers-by to prevent it running into traffic.
The horse was seen near Morrisons on the Laceby bypass, Grimsby, this afternoon before it ran into the main carriageway.
Tragically it was struck by a Fiat Punto and suffered severe injuries, Grimsby Live reports.
It is not thought the driver was aware of the animal - thought to be from the nearby Cottager Equestrian Centre - until moments before the accident.
The animal had to be put down by a vet at the scene, it is understood.


Q. What does "thought to be from the nearby Cottager Equestrian Centre" mean in the article? It's confusing.

Q. By "The animal had to be put down by a vet at the scene, it is understood.", it means the vet arrived at the scene and euthanized the suffering horse? Because the wounds were too severe?
