Manhunt launched after animals slaughtered in 'sickening incident' on farm #RuralCrime

The incident happened some time between 9pm on Saturday, February 11 and 8am on Tuesday, February 13.

 

The offender, or offenders, forced entry to the property in Rubery, West Midlands and, once inside, killed a calf.

 

A ewe was also dragged from an adjacent field and killed.

 

 

It is believed they took the calf out of a shed with its mother and five other cows, slit its throat on the yard then dragged it to a open shed on site, butchered it and also brought a ewe to the shed from a neighbouring farm and butchered it.

 

A police spokesman said: "This was a sickening incident that would have undoubtedly caused a lot of suffering to the two animals. It is likely the animals have been killed for their meat.
