Warning to dog owners after sheep is killed

A police warning has gone out to dog owners in Cornwall after a sheep was reportedly killed.

Officers say a dog was worrying a flock in a field in the Godolphin Cross area, between Helston and Hayle, when the incident happened.

People are now being urged to keep their pets on leads when walking around livestock.

Police are still searching for the dog and its owner - anyone who saw what happened on Saturday or has CCTV is asked to get in contact.

"We are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information in connection with a report of a dog/s worrying sheep in a field in the area of Godolphin Cross, Breage, Helston, sometime between the morning and evening of Saturday 21st September 2019.

"A sheep was killed.

"Dog walkers are asked to keep dogs under control when around livestock. 

"The person in charge of the dog at the time will be guilty of an offence if the dog worries livestock and would be liable to prosecution under Protection of Livestock Act 1953.

"Enquiries are being carried out to locate the owner and dogs.

"If you have any information which may relate to this, or have any CCTV in the area please email 101@dc.police.uk, or phone 101 quoting crime CR/087030/18."
