Dog owners are being urged to keep their dogs on a lead after a sheep was attacked at Ty Mawr Country Park.

The incident happened at around 9.15am on Monday 20 December when a witness saw a Border collie jump into a field where sheep were present.

The witness reported the incident to one of our rangers who upon inspection found a lot of fleece in the field and at least one sheep with a wound to its side.

Currently dogs are allowed off their leads in our public parks (except in the car parks), however if incidents such as this continue to happen we will look at changing the rules.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “We don’t want irresponsible dog owners having a negative impact on the many responsible owners enjoying our parks.

“Please keep your dogs under control in our public parks as we really don’t want to see incidents such as this happening again.”
