Cattle stolen in west Cork

By on
A farmer in the Skibbereen area found out today that some of his cattle had been stolen overnight.
A farmer in the Skibbereen area found out today that some of his cattle had been stolen overnight.

Thirteen Friesian weanling bullocks were reported stolen from a farm near Skibbereen overnight.

Farmer Martin Harte went to check on weanlings in a rented shed this Thursday morning to find a number missing.

"Whoever took them knew their stock well. Out of a group of 30 Friesians, they took the best. There were a dozen Charolais weanlings too and they were left behind," he said.

The weanlings, weighing between 250kg and 300kg, were taken since Wednesday night.

While there are a large number of Friesian weanlings in the west Cork area, Martin said: "They had their backs and tails clipped recently when I treated them for lice so that may help people notice them."

Gardai are investigating the theft.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Skibbereen Garda Station on 028 23088.
