Reward offered after cruel slaughter on Cumbria allotment

Investigations are continuing after ferrets, ducks and chickens were killed on a Penrith allotment.

The attack happened on the town’s Castletown allotments.

The thugs stuck forks through pet ferrets, pulled the bills from ducks, broke a hen’s neck and beheaded chickens in the mindless attack. The ferrets belonged to disabled man Archie Lovell, 71, of Newton Reigny, who has been left distraught by the cruelty.

His daughter, Karen Donnison, 48, has already offered an unspecified reward, and this week three men came forward offering a reward for information totalling £1,200.

Police say the attack happened between April 6 and 8.

Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.

Do we need a tourism authority to promote Cumbria?

Yes. Without proactive promotion we lose business

No. Tourist businesses should pay for their own marketing

If promotion is left to the tourism industry the Lakes will win and north Cumbria will lose
