Police in Famagusta arrested two people who were killing lambs near the Famagusta lake on Monday night.

The pair, aged 35 and 29, were killing lambs outside a slaughterhouse in the area, but it was determined that they had not obtained the relevant licence from the north’s authorities.

Police said they caught the pair “red-handed” in the process of slaughtering a lamb.

A total of 40 live lambs and 10 dead ones were found at the scene, none of which had certificates indicating their ownership or ear tags.

The lambs were taken as evidence, and the police’s investigation into the matter is ongoing.
