The incident happened at a farm near Alton earlier this month.

A spokesman for Staffordshire Moorlands Police said: “Officers are appealing for information after a number of lambs were stolen from a farm off Red Road, near Alton.

The farmer arrived at the field, near to the Ramblers Retreat pub, on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 15 and found one of his sheep had been killed and tied to a post, and 20 lambs were missing.

The incident will have happened between 7.30am on Sunday, June 13 and 4pm on Tuesday, June 15.
