POLICE are appealing for information after three badly savaged sheep were found in the river at Duncombe Park.

PC Jez Wormsley, of Malton Police, said the injuries were consistant with a dog attack.

“Our concern is that this was more than sheep worrying and that the attack was carried out by more than one dog,” he said.

The sheep were attacked between Sunday, November 11 and Monday, November 12.

Anyone with further information should phone PC Wormsley on 101.
