Sheep theft

Alert message sent 15/01/2019 13:35:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Police

Another theft of fat lambs has occurred this time in the Johnby area in mid December. 2 lots of 6 Beltex cross lambs were stolen marked with a red E in the middle of the back but without tags.

This theft, like previous fat lamb thefts is likely to have occurred with a pickup or small lambing trailer and utilised sheepdogs. 

Please keep an eye on neighbours and if you see a strange pickup loading sheep please ring 101 ASAP with why you are concerned and also if possible contact the farmer to see if they are legitimate.
