Mutilated Sheep One

A dead sheep lies in the shaded area of a farm located at 13954 County Road 180, Rosendale, Missouri. An Andrew County Sheriff’s deputy, a local veterinary clinic owner and News-Press NOW reporters ended up at the scene after a mutilated sheep was found nearby.

Four sheep are still alive on a farm near Rosendale after an allegedly mutilated sheep and three other dead animals were found on and near the property yesterday.

According to Gary Silverglat, the owner of animal rescue M’Shoogy’s, Silverglat made contact with the owner of the farm and confirmed that the animals left alive are in better condition. Silverglat said they’re now fenced in a shaded area, and a veterinarian examined the animals.

The status of any law enforcement activity is still unknown, though Silveglat said the animals found at the farm likely died of natural causes. He maintains that the sheep found in the ditch was mutilated.
