Anyone with information regarding this incident should call police on 101 quoting CF0561020917 or visit www.contactcambspolice.uk/Report/."

 

A police report said: “Unknown offender(s) have entered farm premises and killed a lamb by shooting it through the head.”

 

On a nearby farm, on the same day, offenders damaged crops when they drove over 90 acres of fields.

Debbie Hose, a police service volunteer, said: “As always, if you have information relating to any offence, or are concerned about any suspicious activities, please contact the police by using the 101 telephone number.

 

“Alternatively, you can use Crimestoppers to make a report anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or by using their online contact form. In an emergency, or if you witness a crime in progress, always use 999.”

 

The attack comes just months after a four-month-old calf was shot dead by a farm intruder in Doncaster.

 

The animal suffered severe injuries from two gun wounds during the attack on August 6.

 

Despite best efforts from the farm vet, it later died.
