Up to 126 sheep and two rams have reportedly been stolen from a farm in Bury.

 

The theft, from Pilsworth Road in Prestwich, is believed to be a ’repeat offence’ with the animals taken over an extended period of time between November 21 and December 6 after thieves cut through barbed wire fence.

 

The theft was reported to Greater Manchester Police on December 7, but the police could not confirm the number of animals stolen.

 

"We were called out to the property at 9.50am. We are appealing for information," a police spokesman said.

 

The police do not have a description of the thieves because there was no CCTV footage of the incident. People are advised to look out for the animals being sold.
