Thugs behead and mutilate Saddleworth farmer's prized sheep - no-one knows why The remains of a prized Lonk ram, with its head severed and ear clipped off, was found in Diggle - it's believed it had been killed by a crossbow Share The body of a prized Lonk sheep was found in Diggle, Saddleworth (Image: Ken Bennett) Vile thugs have beheaded and mutilated a prized sheep - with mystery surrounding the motive for the savage killing. The four-year-old ram, worth more than £4,000, belonged to the highly-respected Crowther family who have farmed the hills around Saddleworth for generations. But head of the family, Chris Crowther said: “In all the years tending flocks in these hills I’ve never seen anything like it. “My son, Chris junior, got a call from a local saying there was a dead sheep at Pob Green, Diggle . “But when he got to the site he discovered the head from one of our prized Lonk rams had been cleanly severed from its body and was missing. “And the ram’s ear with its identity tag had been neatly clipped from its head and left on the grass. Who would do such a thing? Read More Related Articles “It was a beautiful Lonk ram with magnificent, sweeping curled horns. Why would anyone want to destroy such a magnificent creature?” Mr Crowther said he believed the ram may have been killed by a crossbow. One theory is the head may have been stolen for the horns which could be fashioned into ornate tops on walking sticks or used as decorative souvenirs. One of the ram's ears - complete with its identity tag - was clipped off (Image: Ken Bennett) The attack has been reported to police. The Lonk sheep breed is over 200 years old and prized as a free ranging sheep of the mountain class, able to withstand tough conditions. Improved and pure bred by farmers in the Lancashire and Yorkshire Pennines since the inception of the flock book from the breed in 1905 its main qualities are hardiness, size, health and freedom from disease, colour and longevity. The mutilated body of a prized Lonk sheep was found in Diggle, Saddleworth (Image: Ken Bennett) Matthew Gummerson, the National Farmers Union agent, said: “It is truly shocking to see such a cruel and criminal act being carried out on a sheep. “We strongly opposes any behaviour of this type. Acts like this on livestock are not only impacting the farm businesses but also very distressing for the farmers involved. “We would encourage all member of the local community to keep an out for such actions taking place and report it immediately to the police.” Oldham news We have a dedicated Facebook page bringing you all the latest news, events and community news in Oldham.
