Fears hike stoned sheep might go on ‘psychotic rampage’ after ‘grazing’ cannabis in village


There might be tons and tons of reasons why authorities might be worried about cannabis dumped on a roadside.

But the drug’s potential for causing a  psychotic sheep rampage in a local village probably isn’t one that springs immediately to mind.

Yet, that is what is being warned in Rhydypandy in Wales, where a flock of sheep is already stirring trouble.

Swansea councillor Ioan Richard told the South Wales Evening Post: ‘They are getting in people’s gardens and one even entered a bungalow and left a mess in the bedroom.

Stoned sheep have gone on a "psychotic rampage" after eating cannabis plants dumped in a quiet village. The remains of an illegal cannabis factory was fly-tipped on a Welsh village road - and worried locals fear the sheep have been munching the herbs. County councillor Ioan Richard raised the alarm saying the sheep have been "roaming the village" causing havoc - breaking into homes and getting killed by cars in their haze.

‘I dread to think what will happen if they eat what could well be cannabis plants – we could have an outbreak out of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village.’

The drugs, which are thought to be the remains of a cannabis factory, were left dumped near the village this week.

But according to Swansea council, the incident was dealt with on Tuesday.

A spokesman said: ‘We made the police aware of this incident as soon as it was reported and arranged a site visit together.

‘The fly-tipped waste has now been removed, but we’d urge anyone with information about who may be responsible to contact either ourselves or South Wales Police.

‘Fly-tipping has a negative impact on local communities, so we’re doing all  we can to both prevent it and clean up as quickly as possible at known hot spots.

‘We also investigate all cases of fly-tipping and will take enforcement action if there’s sufficient evidence.’
