I’m Not Pointing Any Fingers

But a certain blogging buddy of ours has been awfully quiet of late…and, well, really, who can resist the charms of Ramsbottom?

A flock of 271 sheep, worth up to £25,000, has been stolen from a field in Ramsbottom, Bury.

No cheap Eastern European Woolly Floozies for our lads

“The value of the euro means lamb is no longer being imported and so British lamb prices have rocketed, so that may be a reason why thieves want to take sheep,” he said.

Well, one of the reasons.

The intrepid police are hot on the trail of this scoundrel

Sgt Ben Hodgkinson, from Lancashire police, said: “It is likely that they knew how to handle the sheep, which would mean they had knowledge of animal husbandry.

Oh, I think that knowledge is pretty extensive.

    I can tell that you’re not pointing fingers, Bingster. That’s because sheep are ungulates, as are the “…horse, zebra, donkey, cattle/bison, rhinoceros, camel, hippopotamus, goat, pig, giraffe, okapi, moose, elk, deer, tapir, antelope, and gazelle.

    That’s a rather wide open field, doncha think?

    So much for Wronwright’s story that he lost the keys to the Tardis.

    First lakes, now sheep. The man is a veritable crime wave all by himself.
