BREACH OF THE FLEECE

Park’s fake sheep stolen

Daily Record - - NEWS - MICHAEL REYNOLDS re­porters@dai­lyrecord.co.uk

FOUR life-sized ce­ramic sheep have been snatched by rustlers from the front gate of a tourist at­trac­tion.

Thieves drove off with the fake an­i­mals from the en­trance to Heads of Ayr farm park in Ayr­shire.

Now park bosses have launched a des­per­ate search for the much-loved an­i­mal stat­ues.

Di­rec­tor Greg Rankin told our sis­ter pa­per The Ayr­shire Post: “The sheep have been there for a cou­ple of years and they’ve be­come a bit of a favourite.

“The kids love get­ting pho­to­graphs with them.

“They were a do­na­tion from a cou­ple who were friendly with the own­ers of the park and they de­cided to do­nate them so ev­ery­one could en­joy them.”

The mod­els were pinched on the night of Septem­ber 22 and staff have turned to the pub­lic to track down their flock.

Greg added: “Our CCTV did catch a ve­hi­cle that had no author­ity to be there.

“The po­lice said to get it out to the pub­lic. It’s gained mo­men­tum from there.”

The car is be­lieved to be a sil­ver Ford Fo­cus and a so­cial me­dia plea by Heads of Ayr has been shared by hun­dreds of peo­ple on­line.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the miss­ing sheep should call Heads of Ayr on 01292 441210, or phone Po­lice Scot­land on 101.
