BREACH OF THE FLEECE
Park’s fake sheep stolen
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.
