does anybody know. the rest of the sheep may be in danger and we want to stop this from ahpening again and if we fnd out or see what it is then we will call in the rspca or an animal control centre to capture it in a humane way

the cuase of death could have been anything from natural causes through mineral deficiecy to acute infection or being savaged by a dog. The eyes will have been removed by the crows and the other injuries caused by badgers dogs or foxes.
Well done for telling the farmer you did the good thing
