Livestock Worrying

Feb 4, 2022

Unfortunately, over recent weeks, we have had a number of reports where sheep have been chased and attacked or killed by dogs.
This can be very upsetting for all those involved.

Livestock worrying is a criminal offence. 
Action could be taken against you and your dog

Please be a responsible dog owner.

  • This means knowing where your dog is and managing its behaviour.
  • If livestock are present – keep it on a lead. (But release if chased by cattle.)

If you see livestock worrying occurring, please report it.
Use 999 if ongoing
otherwise use 101 or

Thank you.
