Injured sheep found in car boot put down after police helicopter search #RuralCrime

Police were called at 8:30am on Sunday (August 13) to reports of men trying to harm livestock in Rutland.

 

Officers and a police helicopter searched to find a white Peugeot which was believed to have an injured animal in its boot.

 

The car was found at 9.30am in Oadby with a sheep inside.

 

A spokeswoman for Leicestershire Police said: "An emergency vet was called to assess the condition of a sheep found in the boot of the car, and the decision was made that it was in the best interest of the animal for it to be destroyed.

 

"Two men aged 19 and 28 were arrested in connection with the incident and remain in police custody."

 

A third man was also arrested for obstructing a police officer and remains in custody.

 

The original call reported men trying to harm livestock on Hambleton footpath in Rutland.
