Great Bedwyn: sheep killed & injured by dog

Police are appealing for information following two serious incidents of livestock worrying in a field near Bedwyn Common.


At 2pm on Sunday, 24 November, a dog attacked and killed a ewe and left two others seriously injured.  A second incident, in the same field, on Sunday, 1 December left a number of ewes seriously injured and in severe shock and distress.

Both incidents happened in a field close to Bedwyn Common in Great Bedwyn.

 

PCSO Melissa Camilleri is a Rural Crime and Heritage Crime Officer: “We are appealing to the public for any information on the attacks."

 

“Unfortunately we don’t have a description of the dog involved but, if you were in the area on either of these days and saw an irresponsible dog owner, we would like to hear from you."

 

“Livestock worrying is a criminal offence and can be very distressing for the farmers who have to deal with the financial and emotional aftermath of a dog attack.  Help us to protect livestock in Wiltshire by putting your dog on a lead."

 

The penalty can be six months imprisonment and/or a fine of up to £1000. It is worth noting that livestock worrying is not just if a dog bites or attacks livestock. It is also if a dog chases livestock in such a way as may be reasonably expected to cause injury/suffering or not having a dog on a lead or under close control when close by  livestock.

 

If you have any information in relation to these incidents, you should call Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
