Escaped dog to be put down after savaging nine sheep - killing three #TakeTheLead

The North Wales Police Rural Crime Team went ’live’ on Twitter yesterday (November 14) and were called to a sheep worrying incident immediately.

 

A dog had escaped from a house, close to the farm, and spent three hours savaging nine sheep, killing three of them.

 

The owner of the dog was out searching for the animal during this time.

 

A police spokesman said: "The decision was made by the owner of the dog to have him euthanized following the savage and frenzied attack.

 

"The dog had previously attacked sheep 10 years previously. A disturbing and thought provoking incident. Compensation will be paid to the farmer also."

 

Here’s how the action unfolded on Twitter:

Over the weekend, a walker was airlifted to hospital after being attacked by Highland cattle following a dog worrying incident.

 

Police said the small herd of cattle was worried by a dog off its lead, resulting in the cattle attacking a member of the public who was walking with another group, not related to the owner of the dog.
