Lamb abuse video accused still on bail

Two teenagers arrested last month in connection with an online video that showed lambs being tormented in the West End are still on police bail.

The video clip sparked revulsion and a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were arrested on April 9.

The lambs were traced to Westover Farms in Somerset and later returned. A police spokesman said yesterday that the two would remain on police bail “pending further inquiries”.

The spokesman added officers continued to look for other people involved in filming the abuse.

Anyone who can provide information or help identify the persons on the video is asked to contact Somerset Police Station 295-0011, or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477.
