Stolen sheep recovered

Members of the K9 unit of the Oostermoed security company in Skeerpoort followed the tracks of stock thieves and recovered all 18 sheep that were stolen from a farmer in Skeerpoort on Monday.

“We received a call about sheep stolen in the early hours on Monday and our dog unit was dispatched to the scene. The thieves’ spoor was followed until we found the tied-up sheep close to the road. The suspects got away,” said Gert du Plessis of Oostermoed security. The Hartbeespoort police were alerted and were on the scene.
