sheep-worrying

In the past few weeks Country Watch has seen a large increase in dogs chasing and attacking livestock in and around our rural communities in Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
This week a resident of East Hants who owns a black Labrador was issued a Community Resolution which they agreed to pay £1250 compensation, write a letter of apology and accept a Dog Behaviour Contract after their dog chased and killed five lambs.

Please keep your dog(s) under close control or on a lead at all times, especially in the countryside where it is likely that livestock will be tending to their young at this time of year.
