Wolf shot after killing sheep

A WOLF that escaped from Port Lympne Zoo killed three rams before being shot.

The Canadian timber wolf leapt over the top of its enclosure and killed the animals more than two miles away.

Villagers at Aldington, Kent, also reported seeing a “large black dog” chasing horses before the sheep died.
