Farmer's distress over sheep attack

A farmer has spoken to ITV Border over the distress he felt after two of his sheep were attacked.

Alan Clark found two of his pregnant ewes with severe wounds to their heads after being attacked in one of his fields on Glebe Road, Bowness on Windermere.

Police believe the attacks have been by dogs who have been off leads, unattended and allowed to chase sheep in fields.

"I feel they're pretty callous people that can just walk away and leave something suffering and not reporting it to anybody. I think they should have at least done something about it. They might have phoned somebody - even if it was just the RSPCA. They could have done it anonymously. I don't know what else to say about them really - it just makes you... quite upsetting."
