Sheep Killed in New Zealand

01 July 2014

NEW ZEALAND – a number of sheep have been reported killed near Oamaru, just one week after nearly 200 were slaughtered at a nearby property in North Otago.

According to 3 News the police are not yet saying whether the animals were shot dead or whether they think the deaths are linked.

Last weekend, 195 sheep were shot at Peter Stackhouse's property over two nights. Many had to be put down because the bullets did not kill them.

Police were baffled as to why so many were shot but not taken for their meat, according to the report.
