Thieves steal 160 sheep near UK town of Wool

Friday - 11/8/2013, 7:48pm  ET

LONDON (AP) -- Wool's wool is missing.

Police in southwest England appealed for help Tuesday in tracking down thieves who made off with 160 sheep from a field near the village of Wool.

Police say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the woolly haul.

Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged.

He is urging anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity -- or been offered sheep "in unusual circumstances or for very low prices" -- to come forward.
