But trying to take 26 sheep in February was his downfall. 

In total the man took 50 sheep, 33 lambs, 5 goats, 19 chickens and 5 turtles. 

But police were on his trail after the last sheep theft. The man had sold them to a farmer, who was suspicious, and reported it. 

It seems some of the man’s friends may have known. One told the Blick newspaper he knew he had taken sheep and sold them to a slaughterhouse. They were turned into kebabs.
