Police educate dog walkers on sheep worrying


Cumbria Police have been educating dog walkers about the effects of sheep worrying on livestock. 

Officers were joined at Ennerdale with a lamb, numbered #475, which was loaned to the force from Birks Farm at Cleator Moor. 

The crime prevention initiative follows a spate of sheep worrying in the area.

Little Ireland previously reported how farmer David Charlton loses 15-20 animals a year from his Parkside farm. 

A Police Spokesperson said:

"The worrying of livestock is an offence which we will deal with robustly where we can identify offenders. 

"Dog owners should also take into account that a farmer who sees their animal worrying livestock is perfectly within the law to shoot their dog to prevent loss or injury to their stock. Balancing the use of a lead with loss of your dog, loss of livestock and a conviction - there is no contest really."
