Ram Raid! Two life-sized ornamental sheep stolen from garden in midnight rustle

EVEN Little Bo Peep should be able to keep tags on these sheep - for they do not move.

But these two, life-sized, ornamental members of the flock have still gone missing from a garden in Wimblington.

Made of fibreglass and worth about �300 each, the sheep disappeared - believed stolen - at some point over Friday night.

“They look like real sheep but they don’t tend to wander off,” said owner Jonathan Moore, of Addison Road.

“I would have thought they would end up in someone’s garden. It is quite likely that have been stolen as a prank.”

Mr Moore bought the sheep from a shop in Downham Market for his wife’s birthday. He also has a fibreglass border collie but it failed to keep the sheep from making off.

A police spokesman said: “These are very distinctive ornaments and I would urge anyone who has any information about their whereabouts to call police on 101.”
