Thieves steal 160 sheep near UK town of WoolNovember 5, 2013 @ 9:22 am
LONDON (AP) - Wool's wool is missing.
Police in southwest England appealed for help Tuesday in tracking down thieves who made off with 160 sheep from a field near the village of Wool.
Police say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the woolly haul.
Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged.
He is urging anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity _ or been offered sheep "in unusual circumstances or for very low prices" _ to come forward.
