The 61-year-old insisted he wasn’t ‘going round’ with a machine gun and the animals were killed ‘humanely’, the news outlet added.

Other comments including the difficulties of sheep farming. He reportedly added: “They don’t want to die in a nice smooth relaxing way, they want to die of something revolting. 

“So they will put their head in the stock fence and try to cut it off, or they will just decide to rot from the back end. 

“They literally rot! Then you have to pay someone to shoot them.

“I should do this myself but it’s just impossible as far as I can work out.”

‘Nobody likes killing an animal’, he added.
