Farmer horrified after finding head of lamb thrown into back garden

A farmer has spoken of her horror after finding the head of one of her lambs in her back garden.

Jayne Knowles, who farms 1,000-head of sheep in Kendal, Cumbria, in partnership with her husband Brian, said she woke on Friday morning (July 27) to also find its mother had been run over on the A6.

 

While she was certain the incident was deliberate - due to the clean-cut nature of the wound - she said she could not find the lamb’s body ‘anywhere’.

 

“It definitely was not a fox because they do not carry knives,” Mrs Knowles said.

“There was blood in the middle of the lawn, as if it had been thrown from the road.

 

“Brian also found a ewe on the back road which had been hit at some speed, with its horns knocked off and oil all over it.”

 

Mrs Knowles said the ewe had suffered several broken legs and been pushed down the road about 50 yards.

 

‘Horrendous’

Its ear tags had also been torn off and left in the road.

 

“My first thought was to call the police but they were not really interested,” Mrs Knowles said.

“They gave me a crime number but that was about it.

 

“It is horrendous. Nothing like this has ever happened before and I have absolutely no idea who it could be.

 

“It just looked like they ran the mum down to get to the lamb. It had another lamb too which has now been left without a mother.”
