Appeal after pregnant sheep shot and killed

Posted on in Local appeals

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information after a sheep was shot in Kirkby Malham near Skipton.

It happened between 10pm on Monday 1 April 2019 and around 10am the following day.

The sheep was in a field with the rest of its flock near to an area known as Acraplatts.
