The dog savaged nine sheep for three hours.

Police in the U.K. broadcasted live on Twitter during their investigation yesterday, according to Farmers Guardian.

The North Wales Police Rural Crime Team was called to a scene where a dog had escaped from a house and targeted a sheep flock, much to the devastation of a farmer.

Three sheep died, with a further six injured as a result of the dog’s three-hour attack. The dog was later tracked down and placed in a trailer.

The officials paid a visit to the dog owner to consult in order to decide on further action.

A tweet was later published saying: "The decision was made by the owner of the dog to have him euthanized following the savage and frenzied attack.

"The dog had previously attacked sheep 10 years previously. A disturbing and thought-provoking incident. Compensation will be paid to the farmer also." The tweet concluded.
