Police are investigating after donkey foal was shot and killed in Lanarkshire.
The two-week-old animal was shot between the eyes on Wednesday 8 August at around 6.30pm
Owner Alan Green found the foal dead in a field. He has more than 20 horses at his farm in Glenboig.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw the wee thing lying there,” he told local press.
“It is very disturbing that someone is running around with a weapon capable of inflicting such injury.”
There has been other reported acts of vandalism in the area, with fencing cut and horses escaping.
Strathclyde Police told H&H that enquiries were continuing but that no arrests have been made.
