A £1,000 reward is being offered after pigs were shot with a crossbow in a “distressing” attack.
The pigs were shot at sometime between 11.30am on Friday November 29, and 9.30am the following morning in a field near to the water tower on the B1123, Blythburgh.
Three pigs were found alive but with arrows still imbedded in them, while two further animals are believed to have been killed and stolen.
A local man, who wishes to remain anonymous, has offered a £500 reward that has been matched by the farmer of the pigs.
The pigs belonged to Jimmy Butler, of Blythburgh Free Range Pork, one of the biggest farms of its type in the county.
