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.
