SHEEP high on cannabis went on a rampage in a Swansea Valley village after eating the remains of a cannabis factory fly-tipped on the side of the road.

County Councillor Ioan Richard reported the incident saying the out-of-control animals were getting in people’s gardens and one had even entered a bungalow causing a mess in the bedroom.

He said: “There is already a flock of sheep roaming the village causing a nuisance. We could have an outbreak of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village."

The plants had been spotted by cross roads above Salem Chapel near Rhydypandy.

Mr Richard said that there had already been instance of sheep being killed in the village after straying into the road.

He said: "I told the council officers to make sure it was reported to the police before removing any evidence of what looks like the dumped remains of a cannabis growing establishment."
