Sheep worrying by dogs
There have been incidents of a dog attacking sheep over the last few weeks. At least one ewe has had to be put down as a result of the injuries caused. Farmers need to be vigilant and dog owners need to ensure that their pets are kept under control. The dog concerned is brown and large to medium sized and has a collar and disc. The dog warden and the police have been informed.
