Date of alert:
Saturday, 13 May 2023
The Welsh cross lamb at the centre of a bizarre drugs bust in Central Scotland, is now safely returned to its owner.
Last month, Police Scotland stopped and searched a car on the M74 and as well as finding £10,000 worth of Class A drugs, there was a young bleating lamb.
Thanks to the lamb's ear tag and some police work, the animal was traced back to Kirsty Mair, from North Lanrigg Farm, in North Lanarkshire, and is now safely back with its mother.
Kirsty’s father, SAC consultant, Robin Mair, who farms with his daughter, said: “I was sitting beside my daughter, Kirsty, when she saw the article about the drugs bust and lamb. She showed me the picture and said ‘Dad, that looks like one of my lambs’.
