The police in Clarendon are urging the public to be on the lookout for donkey meat that is probably being disguised as meat for consumption following the discovery of six of the dead animals yesterday.
THE STAR learnt that the intestines and heads of six donkeys were found in a ditch at Cockpit in the parish following a 'search and rescue' effort by a number of farmers who came together to help another colleague to find his missing animals.
carcasses were found
The worst fears of the farmers were realised some time after midday when the carcasses were found.
They subsequently alerted the police.
When THE STAR contacted the Clarendon police last night, an investigator said the police believe the the donkey meat will now be sold and passed off as meat for consumption.
The inspector said; "we are advising persons to be extra careful when buying meat."
The police also said that investigations are now ongoing as they try to find those responsible.
