Warning for dog owners
Shane McEntee, the Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, has warned of the severe penalties for owners of dogs that attack livestock.
Negligent dog owners may be found liable for damages and costs in civil actions and dogs may be shot by the owners of animals subjected to attacks.
The minister appealed to owners to ensure their dogs are kept under control at all times to avoid suffering and death to sheep and lamb flocks.
