'No more excuses' - sheep mauled by dog just weeks after similar brutal attack #TakeTheLead

Dog walkers have repeatedly been warned to keep their dogs on a lead while walking in the Surrey beauty spot, as a flock of sheep is kept on the land.

 

The latest incident, which left a sheep badly mauled, happened some time between the afternoon of November 29 and the morning of November 30.

 

The sheep are kept by the Downlands Partnership, a conservation group that keeps the sheep in order to maintain the biodiversity of the North Downs.

Clear signs have been posted around the valley and the sheep grazing paddock warning of the dangers of dogs near sheep, and the paddock itself has a dog control order that makes it against the law to walk a dog without a lead.

 

The attack comes after an incident in August where a sheep had its throat ripped out by a dog at the paddock.

 

  • Anyone with information about the latest dog attack is asked to call the Downlands Partnership Grazing team on 07968 832692.
