Some time between 21.00 hrs yesterday and 06.00 hrs this morning (29/7/19), unknown offenders entered a field near the A5 between the Gibbet Lane island and Magna Park island, then killed and butchered 2 ewes and 7 lambs.  If you saw any vehicle or anyone acting suspiciously in this area around the times stated please call 101 and refer to inc 99 of 29/7/19 or email in confidence NorthWarksRuralAlerts@Warwickshire.pnn.police.uk.

If you have livestock or live, go past a field with livestock in and see anything suspicious, especially in the early hours of the morning please contact the police quoting Operation Hillman.

Padlock field gates, if not used regularly put an obstacle in front of them.  Turn or cap the hinges so that gates cannot be lifted off and ensure fences, gates and boundaries are in good order.

Where possible check your livestock at different times of the day, including on clear nights and the early hours of the morning and report anyone acting suspiciously near your stock.
