A flock of sheep became high on weed and caused havoc after eating cannabis plants which were dumped in a quiet village.
It was reported that the flock had stumbled on the remains of an illegal cannabis factory dumped in the quiet village of Rhydypandy in the Swansea valley in South Wales after munching the herbs. Worried locals fear the sheep have been munching the herbs after they exhibited some very odd behaviour.
According to the County councillor Ioan Richard, the sheep have been ‘roaming the village’ causing havoc. It has been reported that the flock have even been breaking into homes and getting killed by cars while in a daze.
Mr Richard said: “There is a flock of sheep roaming the village causing a nuisance.
‘They are getting in people’s gardens and one even entered a bungalow and left a mess in the bedroom.”
People are now afraid more havoc could be wrecked if the rest of the flock discover the remains of the cannabis plantation dumped on the road.
He said: ‘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.’
Mr Richard said that there had already been instance of sheep being killed in the village after straying into the road in the neighbouring village.
He said: ‘I told the council officers to make sure it was reported to the police before removing any evidence of what looks like the dumped remains of a cannabis growing establishment.’
A spokesman for Swansea Council said it acted swiftly to clear the cannabis remains today – but could not confirm if sheep had eaten it.
He added: ‘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.’
