Three-year-old's pet sheep stolen in Langport raid
A SHEEP has been stolen from a three-year-old in Langport.
Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the sheep and a turnover crate was stolen on Sunday, August 11.
A statement from Avon and Somerset Police said the sheep is of particular sentimental value as it is the pet of a three-year-old girl.
The sheep was raised by hand from birth as it was born very weak and initially was unlikely to have survived.
Anyone who has been offered this sheep for sale or who saw anything suspicious in the area is asked to contact PCSO Matt Tailby on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
A statement from the police has advised people to mark their livestock.
It recommended using eartags, freezemarking, microchipping or tattooing to make animals more easily identifiable.
It also advised making a note of any distinguishing marks or feature.
Police also advised people not to mark any storage rooms that could act as a signpost to thieves.
