We have received a report that approximately ten sheep have been shot with a rifle.
The location was an isolated field on the Culworth to Chipping Warden Road and occurred overnight between the 29 and 30 June.
All the sheep were shot in the neck indicating the possible intention to steal the carcasses. As far as we are aware this is an isolated incident but please consider making more regular checks on your livestock in the shorter term.
