16 lambs with 'poisonous meat' stolen from Tyrone farm
The lambs would not be ready to enter the food chain for another six weeks.

POLICE IN TYRONE are appealing for information about the theft of 16 lambs from a farm in Dungannon.

The farm animals were taken from land on the Eglish Road in Dungannon yesterday evening. The farmer who owned the lambs has informed police that they would not be ready to enter the food chain for the next six weeks and that their meat would be “poisonous to humans if eaten”, Chief Inspector Graham Dodds said today.

“I would therefore ask any abattoirs to be aware of this and carry out the proper checks on any lambs that they come into contact with in the next few weeks.”

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact police.
