Dead moles should not be left hanging from a barbed wire fence in the Cotswolds, police have said.
The grisly sight has been causing distress in the area near Cowley Manor and police want it to stop.
PCSO Andrew Biddell is even going to put up a sign asking people not to string the dead mammals on the fence.
He said the moles have been found in the lane that goes round the back of Cowley Manor and past the Girlguiding Gloucestershire HQ, heading towards The Green Dragon.
Issuing a Community Alert, he said: “I will be putting a sign up asking for the moles to not be hung from the fence.
“This issue is causing a lot of distress to people and I would like to get it stopped.”
So a bunch of townies feel 'upset' at the sight of a country practice going back decades before you were born, and you think it should cease immediately?
But, realising you've no power to stop it, you're going to litter the countryside with hectoring signage?
