Police are reminding dog-walkers to take extra care of their dogs when around livestock.
This comes after two sheep were viciously attacked by a dog on Dent Fell in Cleator Moor on Wednesday 28 June, late in the evening.
The sheep were later put down due to the injuries they sustained. Both sheep had lambs, which police say may now struggle to survive.
A dog worrying livestock can be a criminal offence and it is the responsibility of the person or owner to control their dog.
Anyone with information is advised to call PC 2101 Mackenzie on 101 or email email@example.com. Crimestoppers can also be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Police are appealing for witnesses after a sheep worrying incident in Cumbria.
On Tuesday, January 5, on the sand dunes between Seascale and Drigg, a farmer witnessed an out of control dog worrying his livestock.
A short time later he found injuries to one of his sheep, indicating that it had been attacked by a dog.
It is not the first time the farmer's sheep have been attacked, and he has released an image of a previous attack to highlight the seriousness of the issue.
ITV Border has chosen not to show that image because of its graphic content.
This is unfortunately not the first incident of this kind for this farmer, and it has devastating effects.
I'd like to take this opportunity to remind dog walkers that it is an offence to allow your dog to worry livestock and would urge people to place their dogs on a lead when exercising in open access land where livestock is present."
