Wicklow SPCA made a gruesome discovery last month, after finding a sheep carcass in a shed, as reported by the Wicklow People.
The animal was found after a phone call was made to local Gardaí. They arrived at the Rathdrum property to find the sheep hanging up in a back shed connected to the garage of the property.
Gardaí are now investigating as to whether the animal had been killed in a humane fashion or not. The man accused of killing the animal, claimed that they sheep was only purchased the morning of it’s discovery. He said he intended on cooking and cleaning the animal.
The WSPCA were subsequently contacted and they then removed the sheep for further examination. They will now decide whether the killing was carried out according to EU and national legislation.
