Three large plastic bags each filled with at least two dead lambs were found on the grass verge on the Moss Road, Tandragee.

The rotting carcasses are due to be picked up by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council this morning (Thursday April 15).

Local councillor, Alderman Gareth Wilson slammed those responsible.

One of three bags of dead lambs found on grass verge.

The discovery was made by a local person out for a stroll, something the Cusher DUP representative said was “grim” for anyone to come across.

“This is abhorrent and awful for anyone to have to encounter when out for an evening stroll. When you are out for an evening walk this is a very grim thing to come across.”

He added: “Verges are not dumping grounds and should not be used as such and it is worrying that livestock, which is governed by strict disposal of animals rules, is just dumped on the roadside.

“I would urge those responsible to desist from this activity and follow the proper procedures for animal disposal and not create an environmental issue that costs all ratepayers to clean up.”
