POLICE APPEAL: Shocking video footage captures dogs mauling sheep to death #TakeTheLead

The owner of the three dogs is now being hunted.

 

The horrific incident was captured on video as the dogs savaged the sheep, which was lying on the ground at the top of a cliff near a road on the Great Orme in Llandudno.

 

In the footage, two people can be seen on the top of the hill above where the attack is taking place, but appear to turn and walk away.

 

The attack took place on Thursday morning. Anyone with information is being urged to get in touch with officers from North Wales Police’s Rural Crime Team - who posted the video on Twitter.

The dogs appear to be brown, black or tan Staffordshire Bull Terriers or a similar breed with yellow, red, and green harnesses on.

 

The sheep was initially reported to have survived the attack, but later died.

 

Rob Taylor, Rural Crime Team manager, said: “This is a time not to stay quiet but to do the right thing and report the dogs’ owner to the police.

 

 

“The dogs’ harnesses are distinctive and the power of social media can catch them, whether they are local or from away.”

 

"Anyone with information is asked to call North Wales Police on 101, quoting reference number W000179."
