A Jersey farmer has released shocking footage of a sheep, mauled in a dog attack.
Five sheep were wounded in the attack in the Beauport area yesterday.
The Reserve, has made a video showing one of the animal’s injuries, in the hope it can encourage dog owners to be more responsible and keep their dogs on a lead if needs be.
The post, which praises the work of local vets, has been shared more than a hundred times on Facebook.
States Vet, Linda Lowseck, has warned that ewes can abort easily after suffering the stress of been chased and young lambs can become separated from their mother at a critical early bonding stage.
She is advising dog walkers to keep their animals on a lead around any livestock, including poultry.
