Sett surveyors in Devon make grim discovery.
Today we received this message:
“We were surveying a small secluded wood in Tetcott and came across over 30 sheep skulls and bodies in varying states of decomposition – some more recent than others. Most of the skulls had been there for some time but there was still large amounts of wool hanging on hedges where it looks like dead sheep have just been chucked over the hedge and into the wood.
The woods are pretty overgrown and dark so the photos aren’t great. We gathered some of the skulls together to show the number of bodies, but there were many more still about.
Grid ref: SX32663 96269. The landowners definitely allow the south tetcott hunt on this land and it is very close to the hunt kennels. There has been a TB breakdown nearby.”
Please do ring the farmer up and ask him exactly what is going on:
