A Polegate farmer, who last month lost ewes and unborn lambs to a dog attack, has lost another lamb, after it was shot.

The week-old sheep is believed to have been shot through a hedge in Ersham Road near Stone Cross last night (10 April).

Shepherd Jack Holt said, “As this lamb was a single, this ewe – its mum – will now have to be fattened up for meat as even though she still has a good 3-5 years left as a productive ewe, we have no choice, because we just can’t afford to keep her a whole year being unproductive.”
