Pet sheep Wesley is welcomed home by Gerogery’s Jessica and Alamdar Dastani and his mate Brutus. Picture: PETER MERKESTEYNWESLEY the sheep has been returned to a Gerogery couple after he was stolen last month but his mate the peacock is still missing.
Alamdar and Jessica Dastani found the sheep dumped on the side of the road covered in blood and dirt near their property on Monday.
They knew it was their animal when Wesley responded when called by name.
“He’s extremely obedient and follows you better than a dog,” Mr Dastani said.
The sheep was also missing patches of wool.
“It was horrible seeing him like that but we are really happy to have him back,” Mr Dastani said.
The sheep and peacock were taken together but Mr Dastani said they still had no leads on the bird’s whereabouts.
“I think whoever stole it must be targeting peacocks,” he said.
Mr Dastani was worried the peacock would never return.
“If it is locked up for about two months it gets used to the place and when it is released it will never leave,” he said.
“Whoever has dropped the sheep off, hopefully they will do the same with the peacock.”
Mr Dastani urged people to raise the alarm if they noticed anybody with a peacock.
“Coming into spring they are quite noisy,” he said.
