The RSPCA has launched an investigation after a three week old lamb had it's ears cut off.
The lamb which has been named Nelson was attacked in a field at Highthorn Farm near Gotham in Nottinghamshire.
As a result of its injuries, the lamb had been abandoned by it's mother. Luckily Nelson had been accepted by a surrogate ewe, and is also being bottle fed.
