The News Letter is reporting a particularly bizarre form of sectarian attack. Sheep owned by a Protestant farmer have been spray painted green and gold; in addition gate posts were also painted and a tricolour was placed in one of his fields. The farmer who owns the sheep reported that there have been a number of recent incidents. The attacks have been condemned by UUP MLA Billy Armstrong and by Willie Frazer of FAIR.
