Dog attacks 21 sheep

Police are hunting a savage dog which killed and wounded twenty-one sheep in one attack. The dog killed eight sheep and injured thirteen others at the smallholding in Stoke St Michael, Somerset.

It must have been a big dog with a large mouth to have done such damage. Whatever dog did this must have returned home absolutely covered in blood.
