The teens are between 13-15-years of age.

Four teenagers are due to appear in court in the UK next week to face charges relating to two incidents in which sheep were injured.

A 15-year-old girl, a 14-year-old boy, and a 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy from Holbury, New Forest, will appear at Portsmouth Magistrates’ Court on November 25th to face charges of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal.

It is alleged that objects were thrown at the animals on Monday, April 29th at Alver Valley Nature Reserve in Gosport.

Police received a second report on Wednesday, May 1st, shortly before 5.45pm, of an incident in which further injuries were caused to the sheep.

Two other 14-year-old boys arrested in connection with this incident were released with no further action, according to a statement from police.

Incident

In a post on Facebook on April 30th, The Alver Valley, said: “Unfortunately, a small fraction of our younger generation feel that this is acceptable behaviour! Part of our flock was rounded-up and cornered before having rocks and other heavy items thrown at them!”

“The three male teenagers were wearing a dark hoody and two with lighter sweaters. All were wearing tracksuit bottoms. This was in our Wildgrounds earlier, please do contact us or the police with any information.” the social media post concluded.
