Sheep torn to shreds by ‘hell­hounds’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BLOOD­THIRSTY pair of “hell­hounds” which ran riot and left dozens of sheep dead and in­jured in a mid­night ram­page are be­ing hunted by cops.

Farmer Tim Jury, of Pett, near Rye, Sus­sex, lost nine­teen sheep in the at­tack by two Al­sa­tians.

Some of dead sheep were ewes ex­pect­ing lambs, and a fur­ther 32 were badly in­jured and mu­ti­lated.

He said “This has caused deep shock. It is trau­matic see­ing healthy an­i­mals in the field one day, then see­ing them dec­i­mated the next. It is ter­ri­ble when sheep have to be de­stroyed.”

Neigh­bour­ing farmer An­drew Dun­lop had two sheep killed and a fur­ther six­teen badly in­jured.

He said “It was a fe­ro­cious at­tack and they left a trail of car­nage.

“I have been sur­prised by the anger and sup­port expressed by peo­ple in the vil­lage. Dogs should be kept un­der con­trol.”
