ANIMAL HORROR: Over 100 dead lambs dumped at Radlett farm

 Published on: 13th April 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police in Hertfordshire are appealing for information and witnesses after 101 dead lambs were found dumped on farmland in Radlett.

The animals, all in bags, are believed to have been dumped on a field on Hill Farm sometime between 3pm on Thursday, April 7 and 3:45pm on Friday, April 8.

Bushey and Radlett Safer Neighbourhood Team officer PC Mike Morris: ” This incident has understandably caused some concern in the rural community and we are keen to find out where the lambs came from and who is responsible for this.

“We believe that the suspect(s) would most likely have used a road named ‘Kemprow’ to access the farm. If you believe you may have witnessed any suspicious activity in this area, I urge you to make contact as soon as possible.”

PC Richard Donbavand from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s specialist Rural Operational Support Team (ROST) said: “This is being treated as flytipping until we know more about how and why the lambs came to be there. We believe a truck ranging from a flat-bed to a box van in size may have been used to carry the lambs so would reiterate the appeal for anyone who may have seen a vehicle like this in the area during the times stated, to contact police.

“We have been liaising with the National Farmers’ Union following this incident and are aware that this may be cause for concern for local farmers. If that’s the case they can contact the ROST team via ROST@herts.police.uk. Taking steps to ensure your land is secured, such as locking all gates, will help to prevent access to your land but there’s other advice we can give.”
