Sheep Worrying

Following local incidents of sheep worrying, PCSO Matthews has an important message to share with ewe :Livestock worrying is a criminal offence and comes under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953, ‘worrying’ is where a dog attacks or chases livestock causing injury or suffering. This isn’t just a threat to a farmer or land owner’s livelihood, it’s also a dangerous situation for the animals involved, and could lead to more risk if the animals get onto the road….

A farmer is allowed to kill the dog if it’s worrying their livestock. Remember-always keep your dog under control around other animals, and if you see a dog on the loose worrying animals, contact us on 101 or in an emergency 999.

TISPOL Speed Campaign

This week has been the TISPOL Speed Campaign, where officers, speed watch and partner agencies have been showing a presence around the county to help reduce speeding.

Running up to this week, PCSO Tomsett attended a Speed Watch group over the weekend where he met Jack the ‘speedy’ tortoise.

With an average speed of only 0.63mph, it’s unlikely Jack is going to get reported to Operation Crackdown!

However should you witness excessive speeding, or any other anti-social driving, you can report it directly to Op Crackdown here: http://socsi.in/nYMjT
