Dorset Police are warning owners to keep their dogs on leads when walking them near to livestock after reports of sheep worrying in the Wimborne and Weymouth areas.
Now that lambing season has started Dorset Police are releasing posters with graphic images of a sheep that had been injured by a dog.
The images are hoped to shock dog owners into realising the seriousness of sheep worrying and to keep their dogs on leads and under control when walking through sheep fields.
Sheep worrying is a criminal offence and land owners can legally shoot a dog if they believe that their livestock is at risk under the Countryside Right of Way Act & Criminal Damage Act 1971
At this time of year the ewes are close to, or about to, give birth and any stress could have a major impact on the welfare of the animal which in turn could cause financial loss to the farmer.
