Appeal after four 'unusual' ewes stolen #sheep365

The sheep – two Jacob ewes and two Coloured Ryelands ewes – were taken from the farm near Rugby, Warwickshire, last Friday (January 6).

 

They were pedigree stock that were intended for breeding next year.

 

Naomi Nichols, owner of the sheep, said the incidence came as a ‘huge blow’ because the sheep belonged to her husband, ex-serviceman and budding farmer Haydn, who was medically discharged from the Army last year following serious injuries.

She said: “Our farm may be little in scale at the minute and have slightly less conventional breeds but everyone has to start somewhere!

“Obviously we are aware of the possibility that our ewes may have been illegally slaughtered but the thieves took the best four there were, so we are hoping that they were taken for sale or breeding and can therefore still be found.

 

10 per cent of flock

“They were unusual looking sheep so I presume somebody spotted them and snuck them into the back of a van.”

 

Warwickshire Rural Watch have been informed and are investigating the incident.

 

“I know that when considered against the wider scale of livestock theft, our loss is fairly inconsequential,” Mrs Nichols added. “However it was 10 per cent of our flock and is therefore very significant to us.”

 

Anyone with information is urged to call Warwickshire Police on 101 and quote incident 120 of January 6, 2017.
