Stoned sheep invade Welsh village

Stoned sheep have gone on a "psychotic rampage" in the small Welsh village of Rhydypandy after eating cannabis plants.

The plants, left-overs of an illegal cannabis factory, were dumped at the side of a road near the village and there are fears things could get worse.

"There is already a flock of sheep roaming the village causing a nuisance," said County councillor Ioan Richard.

"They are getting in people's gardens and one even entered a bungalow and left a mess in the bedroom."

Mr Richard warned that if the rest of the herd discovered the plants, "we could have an outbreak out of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village."

A spokesman for Swansea Council said the matter had been taken care of this morning.

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.

"Fly-tipping has a negative impact on local communities, so we're doing all we can to both prevent it and clean up as quickly as possible at known hot spots. We also investigate all cases of fly-tipping and will take enforcement action if there's sufficient evidence."
