BH 23032013 - Lambing Open Day at Rushall farm Bradfield

AN appeal has been launched after three lambs, only a day old, were shot in Kingsclere.

The newborns were killed at a farm in Kingsclere Road and police believe they were shot between midnight and 3pm on Friday, May 6.

Countrywatch PC Stephen Rogerson said: "It appears the lambs were shot with an air weapon.

"They were only a day old and out in a field. We are keen to identify the person or people responsible for this cruel and heartless offence.

"Local officers are conducting reassurance patrols in the area and asking that any suspicious activity is reported to us."
