Farmers have warned to be vigilant following a bad dog attack in Co. Cavan on Saturday afternoon (February 2nd).
Six sheep were killed, while a further six were injured, according to Daphne Scott. The following morning, a dog returned and killed another one, and one of the injured died.
“I have lost 8 ewes that were due to lamb and the end of the month. My other ewes are terrified and will probably abort their lambs.” Daphne Scott said in a post on Facebook.
“Please take a good look at these pictures - This is what your dog can do if you do not keep them at home or in your sight at all times.”
“These are defenceless animals that cannot protect themselves and scare easily. They don’t deserve this abuse.” The post concluded.
