Dog owners warned by police as two sheep are injured at Tayinloan farm

MID Argyll police have been made aware of injuries to two sheep at a farm in Tayinloan.

On Thursday January 5 the sheep, both likely to be pregnant, were found injured in a field near Ferry Farm. It is strongly suspected a dog caused the injuries. The farmer is treating the injuries to the sheep, which include a badly torn leg and tail bitten off.

Sergeant Iain Mac-Nicol of Lochgilphead Police commented: ‘With lambing season approaching, the following advice is particularly important but it applies all year round. Dog owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs under control at all times and dogs should be kept on a close lead when anywhere near livestock. It is particularly important at lambing time for owners to keep dogs well away from sheep because even just the sight of a dog in the distance can be enough to panic sheep and scare them away from their lambs.
