Police have reported another incident of illegally slaughtered sheep in Northamptonshire.
25 dead sheep were discovered at a farm in the Thornby area in the early hours of 9 September. The bodies were found in a field off the Welford Road at about 8am.
Since February, Northamptonshire Police has received 12 reports of illegally butchered sheep and lambs.
ITV Anglia has reported on two incidents in the last month. Sometime between 18 August and 19 August, 11 lambs were killed illegally at Whilton near Daventry.
26 lambs were found dead near Harpole between Daventry and Northampton.
Inspector Moore also urged anyone who has information about the sale of cheap meat with unknown provenance to come forward. Northamptonshire Police are "concerned about illegal meat entering the human food chain, as recent use of veterinary medication could mean it’s unfit for human consumption".
