East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service said it had calls on Friday night about an injured sheep on the land belonging to West Rise Junior School, Langney.

It has posted: “Caller is trying to get help calling RSPCA and local vets without any luck.

We have suggested trying to contact the school or police in the hope they find someone responsible

It’s a shame that there isn’t any easier way for injuried agricultural animals to be reported to their owners.”

Alex Richard later posted: “All sorted, they were looked at today all were fine.”
