Sheep decapitated with sword in horror attack

Four sheep have been beheaded in a horrifying attack at a farm.

The attacks happened between 8.30pm on Thursday, June 22, and midday the following day in a field off.

Attackers got into a farmer's field and appear – due to the clean nature of the cut – to have cut off the animals’ heads with some kind of sword.

The distraught farmer at Warbage Lane in Dodford, near Bromsgrove, found four of his ewes' heads in the field, but the bodies of the rare-breed sheep were taken.

Three other ewes were stolen while another ewe died due to the stress of the ordeal.

Specialist rural crime officers attended the scene and local officers are increasing their patrols in the area.
