DOG owners are reminded to keep their pets on leads around livestock after a sheep was attacked and died.

The sheep had to be put to sleep after a suspected dog attack in a field near Castle Road in Kenilworth between 4pm on Sunday (February 10) and 9am on Monday (February 11).

Officers believe a dog being walked nearby attacked the sheep, which had to be put down.

PC Scott McKeown said: “It is a criminal offence to allow a dog to worry or attack livestock, this includes chasing. Please keep your dog on a lead if you are around livestock.”




Police are calling for anyone with information about the attack to get in touch.

Call police on 101 or ring 0800 555 111 to speak to Crimestoppers anonymously.
