9 Sheep killed

LIVESTOCK WORRYING IS A CRIMINAL OFFENCE AND DOGS MUST BE KEPT ON THE LEAD NEAR LIVESTOCK.

Sometime between lunchtime 29th October and 7:45am 30th October, a local farm lost 8 sheep, and had to destroy another one because of its injuries, following an attack by one or more dogs.

The sheep were in a field between Ickleton and Duxford, near a footpath.
The responsibility for this dreadful incident lies squarely with the dog owner/s, who allowed them off the lead near livestock. Sheep worrying is a crime.

It is highly likely that the dog owner, even if not present at the time of the incident, will know because the dog will have had blood on it.

Any breed of dog is capable of attacking sheep, and the results of an attack are awful.

There is a reward of £150 for information leading to identification of the owner/s. Please use the ‘contact us’ tab above, or telephone the local police.
