The animal was found by staff on October 2 at Tilgate Nature Centre in Crawley in West Sussex.

It's possible that the sheep was attacked by a dog some time overnight or in the early morning after being taken from its paddock. The sheep was found burnt in the woods.

This is a horrendous incident and we would appeal to anyone who has information to contact us. The centre has reported on-going incidents of sheep worrying and we are looking into this.
