Dog trainer pleads guilty to dog attack which killed 36 ewes #FGtakethelead

Charles Ross-Robertson, 64, of Stanton Lacy, Ludlow, admitted to two counts of owning a dangerous dog following an attack last September on a farm near Risbury, Herefordshire.

 

He will be sentenced at Hereford Crown Court on March 14.

 

 

Tom Hadley, young breeder and owner of the sheep, said he was owed more than £21,500 in compensation.

 

Almost 40 sheep died during the attack on September 2, with eight still missing - presumed dead.

 

The court received an application for the dogs to be put down but Mr Ross-Robertson protested saying the dogs could be re-trained.

 

He was also charged on a count of carrying an offensive weapon on public land, but the court said the charge will lie on file.
