Coade condemns those behind sheep killings

Alliance Newry and Armagh representative Jackie Coade has condemned those behind a series of sheep killings in the Ballyholland area.

Two “brutal attacks” in the past several days have seen a number of sheep killed – stabbed, with ears cut off.

“These killings are extremely disturbing and I hope police catch whoever is responsible,” said Ms Coade.

“It is difficult to imagine how anyone can commit such cruel acts, particularly on a defenceless animal. Cruelty to animals can be linked to cruelty to humans and every effort must be made to catch the perpetrators.

“If anyone has any information about these incidents, I would encourage them to contact police immediately.”
