Ewes die after stray dog attack
Two ewes died as a result of being attacked by a stray dog near Creetown.
The shocking incident happened in a field between Castle Cary Caravan Park and the old jetty at Carsluith on the evening of June 29.
The sheep owner found the dog – a
German Shephard cross with no collar – attacking one of his dogs at around 8pm. The following day he discovered another had been attacked.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Please remember to lead up your dog when you are walking near fields containing livestock. It is a criminal offence to allow your dog to chase or attack livestock.
“If you saw anything or have any information that may assist police with their enquiries, please phone us on 101 and quote Ref 3694 of June 29.”
