Two sheep have died and a third wasn’t expected to last the night following an apparent dog attack on a flock near to Meikle Grenach last week.
Around 60 sheep, owned by Mr and Mrs Howard of Windy Hall, were being contained in a field belonging to Meikle Grenach. Two were found dead in the field at the weekend, a third was alive but seriously ill, and a further 11 have sustained what looks like bite marks to their bodies.
If you have any information, please phone the non-emergency telephone number 101 and ask to be connected to Rothesay police office.
