Kilkenny gardai issue warning over dog attacks on livestock
Kilkenny gardai have urged dog owners to keep their animals under control at all times.
The warning comes amid concerns over attacks on livestock.
A local Garda spokesperson said: “It is vital that dogs are kept on a lead around livestock. If you live in or near a farming area, you must make sure that your dog cannot escape from your property, as it may find its way onto land containing sheep
“Uncontrolled pets can decimate a flock. Pet owners are responsible for ensuring that their dogs are under control at all times.”
