A couple who decapitated a rare breed of sheep before terrifying a group of children with its severed head have been jailed.
Robert Carr and Miranda Clark, both from Willington, County Durham, stabbed the animal numerous times in the neck and stomach before chopping off its head. They then set about using the head to frighten a group of children before throwing it into a neighbour's back yard.Lovely!
The pair had previously pleaded guilty to three counts of cruelty to a person under 16, one count of having a bladed article, one count of destroying property and one count of causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal. Today at Durham Crown Court Carr was given a 20-month sentence and Clark one of eight months.They should be sectioned.
