A lamb has been beheaded in a Derbyshire village.
A farmer in Edale contacted police on Tuesday after he found the animal’s mutilated body in a field near his farmhouse.
Officers said the animal’s head had been “cleanly removed”. They are satisfied that the injury could not have been inflicted by another animal.
Witnesses or anyone with information about the crime should call police on 101 or Crimestopers on 080 555 111.
