A number of dead cattle have been discovered by the Canon Sheehan Loop in Glenanaar Forest between Ardpatrick and Kildorrery.
The gruesome discovery was made by a local couple, where two animals were located on the walking loop past the Mass Rock. The couple were alerted to the discovery by an odour in the area.
Returning the following day, one of the party discovered another two dead animals in the ditch on the Ardpatrick Road.
Photos sent to The Avondhu show at least one of the animals in an advanced state of decay.
