Kilkenny animal cruelty: Cows killed in after jeep drives into field and deliberately kills animals

Gardaí are investigating a serious incident where a vehicle was deliberately driven at calves in a field on the outskirts of Callan.

The incident happened in the early hours of Friday morning, close to Kilbride cemetery, off the main Kilkenny to Callan Road.

On Friday morning a local farmer found one calf dead and another so seriously injured he had to be put down. A number of other calves were also seriously injured.

A jeep was found out burned out by gardaí on the outskirts of the city a short time later.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kilkenny gardaí on (056) 777 5000
