There has been yet another attack on a sheep flock in Buckland Brewer.
It occurred at 9.30 pm on the evening of Saturday 27 June 2015. The flock was grazing in the Lydeland Water valley area when it was attacked.
The attack was seen. It involved two dogs. One was described as a large Rottweiler-type, and the other as a Jack Russell terrier with a long black tail.
These attacks are disgusting. They cause sheep intense pain and terror. They are totally preventable. They can and must be stopped. Dog owners are responsible for the actions of their dogs, especially when they are out of sight.
If you can identify the dogs and their owner, could you please contact the Clerk to Buckland Brewer Parish at the address below. This is the first step. You can write in confidence. The information will enable subsequent steps to be taken to prevent a recurrence.
