Lonely lamb in Ahuroa Road paddock

Morning

I noticed a young lamb completely all by itself on Friday 18th in the afternoon and is still by itself today, Saturday.

It must be hungry and needing a feed as it approached my friend with his 2 dogs.

It is in the paddock that is opposite house number 1159 Ahuroa Road.

If you are, or know, the farmer of that lamb/paddock – recommend you collect and check on the little fella asap.

Hey farmers,land owners in Kaukapakapa, surrounding areas

We live in Kaukapakapa, Stoney creek road. My neighbour and I have roughly 50/60 sheep, lambs between properties.Sometime Friday 12th or Saturday 13th August, some prick or pricks took lambs from our paddock which is near roadside. We were left with clean cut lamb heads.We also found lamb with left side of face torn off, but this looks 3 or 4 days old, so I’m unsure if this is connected. Concerning for me is they must have had a good look sometime,scoping the paddock as its very hilly,very wet, with gorse, blackberry not far from house and being a 5 acre paddock, you would need to know where you are going. One lamb had been bottle feed so sad for my kids to see just its head.

So keep an eye on neightbouring properties, been a Kaukapaian for long time, Im telling myself prick or pricks surely can’t live round here, but they new what they were doing for sure. If its you and you read this, come and see me we just chat,if you are hard up for cash, i will give you a whole sheep, i even get it butchered for you but you need to come and see me. Brandon

There have been a few sightings of suspicious activity involving a dark sedan scoping out lambs in a paddock on Martin Access Rd, it’s potentially related. 

So, please keep your eyes open and alert the police to any suspicious behavior you might see, then drop us a note so we can warn the neighborhood support groups.

Thanks. Stay safe.
