The warning came after a ewe and two lambs were killed by loose dogs in a field at Topcliffe, Hambleton between the early hours of July 31 to August 1.

 

A spokesman for North Yorkshire police said: “Dog attacks on livestock results often in death or severe injury, and have a huge impact on farmers and their livelihoods.

 

“The message to owners is simple – keep your dog on a lead near livestock, even if they are in a separate field.

 

“Even the most mild-mannered dog can see sheep, especially lambs, as something to chase and kill.”

 

Anyone with information of the incident is asked to contact police on 101, with reference number NYP-02082017-0087.

Farmers Guardian - Take the Lead campaign

Farmers Guardian - Take the Lead campaign

Farmers Guardian is taking the lead by raising awareness among the British public about livestock worrying and speaking up for our readers’ concerns.

 

What we are doing

  • FG is working with leading farming and rural organisations to raise awareness of livestock worrying and reduce the number of dog attacks
  • We are targeting dog, lifestyle and countryside magazines to raise the importance of the issue which costs businesses millions of pounds each year and leaves farmers devastated
  • We have produced signs for farmers to put up around their fields which will be sent out with copies of Farmers Guardian on April 11. In the meantime, a downloadable poster to warn walkers of the consequences of livestock worrying is available now on our website
  • FG will be speaking about the issue to 10,000 people at the Just Dogs Live show at the Peterborough arena this summer and will also be giving out free signs at the major agricultural shows
  • In conjunction with our partners BVA and NSA, we will spread the message through social media and the national and regional press, both print and broadcast
