Ram Set On Fire

It happened at some time between 6.30pm on Monday 5 August 2013 and 11am on Tuesday 6 August while the ram was in a field near Tewin Water.

Those responsible for setting the ram on fire then left the scene.  The animal is believed to have died as a result of its injuries.

“Thankfully this is an isolated incident and I would like to reassure the public that it is being thoroughly investigated.

"I would ask anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area at the time the incident or who knows anything else about it to please get in touch as soon as possible.”
