4x4 an­i­mals kill 4 sheep

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SICK thieves chased a flock of ter­ri­fied sheep round a field with a 4x4 and killed four of them, leav­ing just their HEADS ly­ing in the blood­stained grass.

Farmer Nick Bullen said a gang used the ve­hi­cle to round up the sheep – worth about £150 each – be­fore tak­ing four and butcher­ing them.

Nick, of Swan­worth Farm in Nor­bury Park, Sur­rey, said of the 3am raid: “I had put a lot of hard work and ef­fort into rear­ing these sheep, and I’m an­gry some­one could treat an­i­mals like that.

“It’s peo­ple with no con­cern for my liveli­hood or my an­i­mals’ wel­fare.”
