**GRAPHIC CONTENT**A number of in-lamb ewes were killed, another died of shock the following day, one ewe aborted her lambs and others are badly injured.

Farmers have been warned to be vigilant following a bad dog attack in the Ballymascanlon area of Co. Louth last Thursday (January, 24).

Two heavily pregnant ewes were killed, while another ewe died of shock the following day, according to Padraig Rice – the owner.

“There are another 14 badly injured with throats cut and some with broken legs; one ewe also aborted her lambs.” He wrote on Facebook.

“So, if anyone sees dogs running free, can they please call the Louth County Council Dog Warden to stop this happening again.” The post concluded.
