A round-up of ru­ral news

SHEEP wor­ry­ing by dogs, a crime af­fect­ing many flock keep­ers through­out the UK, was put in front of po­lice forces at last month’s Na­tional Po­lice Chief Coun­cil (NPCC) Ru­ral Crime Sum­mit by the Na­tional Sheep As­so­ci­a­tion (NSA). The NSA is work­ing with Sheep­Watch UK, as well as the Live­stock Of­fences Group, to sup­port the NPCC’s pro­posed amend­ments to the Dan­ger­ous Dogs Act that would give po­lice the power to tackle sheep wor­ry­ing of­fences more ef­fec­tively. Mean­while, the NSA is urg­ing ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties to re­port ev­ery of­fence to the po­lice, no mat­ter how small.
