A two-time dog attack victim has set up a petition to make it law for dogs to be kept on leads around livestock.
Kelly Garratt created the petition which, if it receives 10,000 signatures will receive a response from the Government.
At 100,000 signatures, the petition will be considered for debate in Parliament.
On the petition page, Ms Garratt wrote: "For the second time in two years I have spent the last few hours trying to find our sheep who have been worried by a loose dog.
"We have a dead lamb and some very poorly ewes. Last year we lost 13 ewes who were ready to lamb.
"This is happening all over the country and something needs to be done."
Dog attacks continue to wreck havoc up and down the country with no sign of slowing down.
With sponsorship from The Original Muck Boot Company, Farmers Guardian has been working alongside the British Veterinary Association and the National Sheep Association to raise awareness of dog attacks via its Take the Lead campaign.
