Sheep Worrying

Alert message sent 16/03/2020 09:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

It’s the start of the lambing season and we have already had some sheep worrying this month in Wing where a lamb and 3 chickens were killed by a dog off its lead. Please know the law.
Lambing season- keep your dogs on leads around sheep!
Lambing season has now started so please can all dog owners keep their dogs on leads around as well as in fields of sheep. Pregnant ewes will abort their lambs and can suffer heart attacks through the stress of being chased even if the dog never catches them. Any and all breeds of dogs are capable of doing huge amounts of damage in minutes - do not risk them or the sheep’s/ lambs lives.
