DOG CONTROL

There have been a number of incidents around the country of ewes and lambs being attacked and killed by dogs.  

In Warwickshire we are aware of two possible attacks.  

If you have a dog, please keep it on a lead when passing through fields with any kind of livestock, especially with young at this time of year. 

Always make sure you know where your dog is, especially if you live near fields with livestock in. Your dog is your responsibility both when you are at home and away. 

Please be aware that from 6th April, 2016, ALL dogs in England, Scotland and Wales will be legally required to be microchipped and their details registered on an authorised database. Failure to comply could lead to a fine of £500.  

Many thanks for your assistance.
