Police appeal after 15 Welsh mountain lambs stolen #sheep365 #ruralcrime

Police have called for information after a flock of 15 sheep were stolen from a farm in Padeswood, Mold.

The Welsh mountain lambs were thought to have been stolen yesterday morning (February 13).



One sheep managed to escape the ordeal but was found with cuts in its ears, thought to remove the tags.


A spokesman for the North Wales Rural Crime Team said on twitter: “The sad fact is the other 15 stolen sheep probably had a worse fate.


“Thieves don't care except for their own greed.”
