A farmer in Llanybydder rang Dyfed-Powys Police claiming a spaceship had stolen his sheep. Here's a picture of some sheep - but not the ones that were allegedly abducted!

A FARMER in Carmarthenshire told police a spaceship abducted one of his sheep.

It was one of 27 calls relating to sightings of UFOs received in the Dyfed-Powys area in the last 12 years.

The spaceship apparently beamed up a sheep from a field near Llanybydder in 2011.

It’s not known if it gave it back again as the incident was never confirmed.

Among the other 26 were a caller from Carmarthen who saw a long streak of light, standing still in the sky, and a triangle of lights which was spotted by a Llandysul resident.

UFO expert Gavin Davies, from west Wales, said reports of animal abductions by aliens were rare.

"The only one like that I have heard of was in Broadhaven in the 1970s. A whole herd of cows was moved from one field to another,” he said.

"A man was working in a milking shed. He had only popped in for a minute and when he came out the cows were all in a different field."

Why aliens would wish to move cows between fields is a different question.

According to Mr Davies, strange incidents involving animals are more frequent in Canada and North America.

"Cows go missing and they are found miles away. They are missing their anuses, their eyes, their horns and they are found miles away. That's one of the biggest unsolved mysteries," he added.

    I guess this report proves one thing: That Carmarthenshire is still a top producer of quality marijuana.

    Good job there's not an "e" on the end of Mars or that would probably get the chop as well.

    Oh yeah, stolen by beings from Ewer****, no doubt. A bit too much of the home brew, more than likely. Pigs might fly, but sheep?

    Oh I'm so glad that the EP has shown us a ' picture of some sheep' even though they 'were not the ones alledgedly abducted' - I'd never have guessed what sheep looked like!! I'm seriously considering about saving £3.00 a week!
