Police are appealing for witnesses after a series of dog attacks at a farm in Wood End in Hertfordshire.
A number of lambs ewes and a goose have been killed at Highbury Farm by what’s believed to be domestic dogs on the loose.
Farmer Peter Gear is urging dog owners to be more responsible as the attacks continue to happen and threaten his livelihood.
The latest attack on livestock at Highbury Farm happened just yesterday morning…the result another horrific discovery of yet more dead lambs.
It’s believed that at least two domestic dogs being let out unaccompanied are responsible for the attack if caught it’s the owners who face prosecution.
Since the start of the lambing season about two months ago there have been a number of attacks at Highbury Farm claiming the lives of 24 lambs, three ewes and a goose.**
Two lambs were born at Highbury this morning, but while the dogs remain at large and their owners untraceable, Peter is praying they too don’t end up meeting the same fate.
