Three cattle are mutilated and killed on a North Cornwall farm.

Owner Tony Weaving is offering a two thousand pound reward to help catch whoever is behind the attacks at Penhale Farm near St Tudy.

Two of the bullocks were attacked with a blunt instrument. A third had its tongue cut out.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

Mr Weaving says he has installed CCTV cameras around the farm as a precaution:

"I just cannot comprehend what sort of person would do something like that to a defenceless animal. I will do my utmost to try and find them and to have them brought to justice, and I would like to expose them for the brutality that they've done.

"These animals, we've all hand a part in rearing them at different stages of their life, from baby calves when they're on milk and right through. Everyone's been affected by this, my staff and everybody. It's sort of knocked everybody sideways really."
