For the third time in almost as many weeks, there has been another incidence of a serious attack of sheep which has resulted in the loss of valued animals.
Two occurances were in Hardington Marsh and last night at the Manor Farm, North Perrott.
In all cases, dogs are the chief suspect and all incidences are reported as having taken place overnight.
Please report on 999 if you see a dog attack on stock or if you witness evidence of people “working” dogs at night.
When walking on farmland, please keep your dogs under close control and in sight at all times. An alarming rise in dogs attacking sheep in the North Perrott, Haselbury and Hardington areas has been reported over the last few years and the Police are involved in trying to aprehend those responsible.
