NFU Cumbria County Adviser Mike Sanderson commented on the attacks:
Farmers in the area need to be especially vigilant until the culprit is brought to justice. The rural community works closely with the police through Farm Watch and other schemes and we would urge farmers to report any information they may have to officers. When members of the public are out walking in the countryside, it is important to remember that it is a working environment where animals graze.
