Scottish SPCA appeal for information after sheep discovered in garden

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after nine sheep were discovered in a garden in Rumbling Bridge, Kinross.

Sheep in garden

We were alerted on 7 April by the owner of the house after eight sheep were found in his enclosed garden, with one more appearing by the next morning.

Animal rescue officer Katherine Aitchison said, “Eight of the sheep appeared in the garden, with no explanation, on Sunday.  The ninth had appeared by Monday morning. 

“We have contacted local farmers and so far, nobody knows where the sheep have come from.

“The sheep are stable but in poor looking condition with faeces on their coat.  One has sadly passed away. 

“This is a very unusual situation and we are keen to find out how the sheep came to be in this garden.

“If anyone in the area has any information, please contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
