THIRTY Four intestines were found in the veld near N12. Northern Cape police spokesperson, Capt Olebogeng Tawana said the Kimberley Stock Theft Unit has launched an intensive manhunt after 78 sheep were stolen.
“The sheep were stolen last week at Veemark Vleis Mark, in Kimberley. The sheep were allegedly ferried for about 10 Kilometres outside Veemark Vleis Mark. During our investigation and search in the veld, we discovered 34 intestines in the veld near N12.
“These intestines are suspected to be of the sheep which were stolen from Veemark Vleis Mark. The suspects allegedly slaughtered 34 sheep and left intestines in the veld. They took the carcasses and skins with them,” Tawana said.
He said upon further investigation, 21 of the 78 sheep were found wandering off near Eureka Farm recently. Tawana said they were following leads which could assist them with investigation to bring the perpetrators to book.
“Anyone with the information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects is requested to contact Warrant Officer Bean at Kimberley Stock Theft Unit on 082 4546 374 Tawana or 10 111 / 08600 10 111. All information shall be treated with strictest confidentiality,” he said.
