Dog owners warned to 'take the lead'  - picture

Dog owners are being urged to ‘take the lead’ during lambing season.

Police are asking people to keep their pets on a lead during countryside walks.

They say the season is risky for the farm animals as the ewes can miscarry when worried by dogs – they are also at risk of being attacked, maimed or killed.

Officers say whilst they want everyone to enjoy the countryside people have to respect agricultural livestock and their environment.
