Drivers Beware !! Sheep on the Road

Since December 2016 ten sheep have been killed by motor vehicles on the Castlemorton to Coombe Green Road, Malvern, Worcestershire, and many more sheep were injured by drivers on Castle Morton Common last year resulting in their early demise.

Sheep on the road

We are appealing to motorists to be more aware that the area surrounding Castlemorton and Coombe Green is common land, and sheep are allowed to roam freely.  Since last year we have seen approximately ten sheep killed by motorists and numerous others have suffered injuries from vehicle collisions that have resulted in them being humanely terminated.  These sheep are part of the rural community and as it is common land they are grazing on they do occasionally tend to stray onto the road.  We are asking that drivers be a little more aware of their surroundings and take care on rural roads.
