Three recent attacks by dogs on sheep in West Sussex have underlined the need for dog owners to use a lead near livestock, says the NFU.
- March 10, female sheep savaged at Cissbury Ring, above Findon valley c.8.30am - no dog found
- March 10, female sheep savaged and a dog found beside Washington car park and gas station, c.9am/10am
The field at Cissbury has three Sussex Police/NFU warning signs along the boundaries and the attack was only 30m from a sign. In the first attack, no dog was found and farmer Chris Hodgkins hopes a witness may help police find its owner.
Both the injured sheep have been taken to Locks Farm ,Washington, near Pulborough.
