The number of dogs I've see lost on the dog sites, whilst having a look through for our own boy, amazes me, perhaps someone has dumped a dog?

I see in Farmers Guardian that a dog owner in Anglesey has been jailed for three months for allowing two American pit bulls to savage a bull (which had to be put down) then a few days later 9 sheep belonging to another farmer (who shot the dogs).  She'd put some carpet over the fence to allow the dogs access to the field!!!!

True, conclusion is dog, caught someone this morning walking along the hedge line between two fields. Looks like I didnt realise a few locals were using a morning cut-through.

Dog was off lead too, pity no sheep in the field as I was close to loosing my rag.

The worst bit is chances are the owner saw what the dog did and scarpered.

Get some signs up, loose dogs will be shot. You won't have to shoot any, but it'll make folk think.

put your photo of carcase on a poster, either 'did your dog do this? or
'Reward following prosecution' type poster?
as you won't have the evidence to prosecute you won't have to pay anybody?
