Message to all Farmers and Small Holders

Following a number of sheep being illegally slaughtered and a recent theft of a large number of sheep, we believe those that are committing the crimes may be putting markers on the perimeter fences and gates of sites that they plan to target.

Could all farmers and landowners of livestock check their entry points to their fields regularly. If you identify any type of marker please report this to the police as soon as possible.

If you have any information about any suspicious activity please call Northamptonshire Police on 101, quoting Operation Stock. In an emergency, always call 999.
