Hideous Savages On The Loose
Sick thieves cut the legs off 10 sheep while they were still alive in a series of raids on a farm.
Farmer William Perkins, 65, found his butchered animals – including several pregnant ewes – dead with their back legs removed at the hip.
He says the limbs were taken off with great skill and thinks they have been sold for meat.
Mr Perkins and wife Joan have been left devastated by the four night-time attacks on their Stockport farm in the last fortnight – and police are warning other farmers to be vigilant. Read more: Manchester Evening News
The savages responsible for this are evil beyond belief. This latest attack was in Stockport, but sheep thefts have recently happened in Tameside too. The article below is from the Advertiser on 25th Oct 2012 and concerns lambs being stolen in Stalybridge. I have a good idea what type of people have a preference for lamb and who are evil enough to perpetrate such savage acts. Maybe the police ought to look in the Rusholme direction for clues?
