Could these sheep be killer's next victims?

A MYSTERY sheep killer has struck again, claiming the lives of a family’s beloved pet lambs.

Carole Sarsons was confronted by pools of blood when she checked on the flock at Sharpes Lane in Bourne End.

Her brother John and his wife Sue were on holiday in Portugal when they were told of the deaths overnight on Saturday.

They said it is a ‘horror story’ after one of the lambs killed was Minty, who was born in January and bottle-fed by the family.

Another sheep attack happened on Wednesday, May 11, when owners said a sheep was ‘professionally’ slaughtered on land near The Twist in Wigginton.

Mrs Pritchard, who now has a flock of one ram, eight ewes and just eight lambs, said: “This is a horror story to us. These are our own babies and two have been slaughtered. I still cannot believe there is someone out there that evil.”
