Chickens and pigeons have been kicked to death by thugs in an “absolutely horrific” spate of attacks.

And in one particularly cruel act, a 15-year-old goose was killed after the culprits seemingly stamped it to death – before they buried its head in mud.

Police say allotment holders – including pensioners – have been left “heartbroken” after discovering the shocking acts of violence against the animals.

It appears the livestock were kicked and even stamped on, while others were seemingly let out to escape at the council allotments in Hartlepool.

Cleveland Police say the allotments, between Elmwood Road, Thornhill Gardens and Wiltshire Way, were targeted between Sunday and Monday.

A 69-year-old man was left distraught when between 1pm on Sunday and 9am on Monday someone got into a shed and opened a chicken coup.
