A farming couple have been left devastated after one of their female cows was executed in an attack on a farm in Lancashire.
Kenneth Tyson and his partner, Julie Wickington, believe their Beef Shorthorn-cross heifer may have been chased off the farm by poachers with dogs before it was surrounded in the corner of a neighbour’s field and shot dead with a high-powered rifle.
The attack happened sometime between the evening of Friday 25 August and Sunday 27 August in Cliviger, near Burnley.
