Remains of a sheep trapped in fencing (detail)
Remains of a sheep trapped in fencing (detail)
This sheep has become trapped by its horn, resulting in a most unpleasant end for the poor creature. On close inspection I could see how it must have become held, struggled (note wear on horn) and despite presumably being able to nibble or graze it may have become dehydrated or easy prey to a fox or birds in a weakened state. Only human intervention would have saved it and it looks as if the farmer overlooked it and walkers failed to pass in time.
