Man charged for slaughtering sheep in Orange

A man has been charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty after allegedly killing sheep in Australia’s central west.

A 62-year-old man alerted police, after discovering a number of sheep dead on his property in Mullion Creek.

The sheep had allegedly been stabbed to death or mauled by a dog.

Officers from Canobolas Local Area Command and Chiefly Rural Crime Investigators have commenced inquires.

Attention drawn to posts on social media sites that depicted a mans cruelty to animals has resulted in a 22 year-old man being arrested to Orange Police Station.

Bail has been refused and the man has subsequently been charged with four offences and will appear at Orange Local Court today.
