Police are investigating the theft of 75 sheep from a farm by Tomatin.

The sheep are Scottish Black Face ewes ‘South Type’.

Those that have been taken are 40 breeding ewes and 35 wether hoggs (castrated male sheep)

They all are branded on their right horn with "MSF" and marked with a red spot on their right side.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "It is not clear whether the sheep have been stolen in smaller amounts from their rural pastures between January and March of this year."

Any information regarding this incident or similar suspicions behaviour around farms and livestock, should be passed to police officers in Inverness by calling 101 quoting Ref No. NN/2070/21
