Dog owners are being reminded to keep their animals under control following another sheep attack.

Millie, a three-year-old ewe, suffered facial injuries while trying to shield her two lambs. The incident took place at Edgefield Farm, Loanhead, sometime between Friday May 6 and Saturday May 7.

Farmer Mrs Nan Tait told the Advertiser: “It was Saturday when we found the ewe. Her face was quite badly bitten. I think she had been trying to protect her lambs. The two lambs were splattered with blood but they hadn’t been bitten.”
