    Is this normal

    Walked up a paper road over farm land to get to some native bush,on the kilometer walk over the farm there was at least 12 dead sheep,I cut 4 sheep out of blackberry bushes that were stuck as they had really long wool and tails and could not get themselves out,lots of the sheep, young and old had long tails and had not been shorn in ages,further away over the farm I could see more dead sheep.Am I being too sensitve here? it is the central plateau, cold and wet, but I have never seen a farm like this before.

    Not normal. I'd be knocking on the door and seeing if he needed a hand.

    Not normal in any way shape or form. That is a lot of money lying dead on the ground, clearly something is up around there.

    And if the cocky gives you the heave-ho that's when SPCA can be interested. Feed is lean for many now so hungry animals won't be unheard of. Having said that there are many many responsible cockies who take their animal husbandry very seriously, lest any think I'm generalising!

    Yep, speak up, if more people spoke up, motherfucking bastards like Micheal Whitelock wouldn't get away with the nasty shit they do to animals on farms. This might not be in that category, but does needs sorted, and has been pointed out might be just an old bloke just needs a hand.

    Exactly. Easy route to start with, before head long into SPCA/MPI.
