Police Report

Lambing Season

With lambing season now under way, I would like to remind dog walkers to keep their pets on a lead when they are near sheep.
Dog owners have a clear responsibility to ensure their pets are under control and this is made clear in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, especially when there are pregnant ewes and young lambs in the fields. If your pets chase or worry sheep, you are likely to get prosecuted and you could lose your dog.
Worrying is defined as attacking livestock, chasing livestock in such a way that it may be reasonable to expect the dog to cause injury or suffering to livestock as well as abortion in female animals, and being at large (not under close control or on a lead) in a field or enclosure where there are sheep.
In some circumstances, farmers are legally entitled to shoot dogs if they are endangering their sheep. Therefore it is vital that you keep your dog on the lead around livestock.
