Sheep in Gloucestershire field shot in eye

A sheep has been shot in the eye in a field behind a Gloucestershire farm.

The animal survived the shot, which police believe was fired from an air rifle, but has possibly lost its sight in the eye.

The incident happened in a field off Tewkesbury Road, Deerhurst, between 1800 GMT on Wednesday and 0900 GMT on Thursday.

Officers said the owners had also suffered financial loss because of the vet bills.
