Sheep shot after wandering on Dixie Farm


Share post:

A SMALL FARMER is counting his losses after a number of his prized Black Belly sheep were shot dead when they wandered on to a neighbouring St John farm.

And as District “C” police investigate, the man accused of being behind the killing has agreed to replace four sheep. The two sides dispute the number killed; owner Jason Ashby put the figure at 12.

It was about four days ago, said witnesses to the incident, that some of Ashby’s flock were shot, loaded on to two trucks and driven away.

Ashby, 31, of St John, was at work when the incident occurred. However, reports said his 78 sheep escaped after a rotted gate at his small farm broke.
