Police are warning dogs which attack sheep in Cornwall could be shot.

It comes after a three week old lamb was badly injured at a farm near Cardinham on Bodmin moor.

Officers say they have had other reports of livestock being chased on the moor. That is even though it is illegal for owners to let pets off the lead on private land.

PCSO Lloyd Paynter said it is distressing for farmers, "The farming community are all extremely worried about it. Obviously, it affects their livelihood. The costs are excessive, because they have to get vets in, and very often an animal can need to be destroyed to put it out of its suffering.

"The message is quite clear. If people are out walking their dogs, exercising their dogs anywhere in the rural community, they should be kept on a lead. The farmers could exercise their right to actually shoot the animal if it starts worrying the sheep on their land."
