Sheep are feared to have gone on a "psychotic rampage" after eating cannabis plants dumped in a village.
The remains of an illegal cannabis factory was fly-tipped in the Welsh village and worried locals fear the sheep have been munching the plants.
County councillor Ioan Richard raised the alarm, saying the sheep have been "roaming the village" causing havoc by breaking into homes.
Mr Richard said: "There is already a flock of sheep roaming the village causing a nuisance.
"They are getting in people's gardens and one even entered a bungalow and left a mess in the bedroom."
He warned of the dangers of the rest of the flock discovering the remains of the cannabis plantation dumped at Rhydypandy, in the Swansea valley in South Wales.
He said: "I dread to think what will happen if they eat what could well be cannabis plants - we could have an outbreak out of psychotic sheep rampaging through the village."
The councillor has been waging a crusade against frequent fly-tipping in the countryside in his area.
