Dog walking on farm land
Picture of sheep grazing at Great Rissington.
Gloucestershire police have received calls from concerned farmers regarding dog walkers leaving dog’s faeces on farm land, especially in fields with live stock.
If a dog has worms this can be treated. If sheep pick up dog worms , this can not be treated and the sheep become very sick and will die.
We are asking dog owners to be responsible and to pick up after their dogs in all rural areas. I public areas there are plenty of dog poo bins around.
If found committing this offence there is a fine of up to £1500
Many thanks, PC 2201 Nick Westmacott, Wildlife Officer for North Cotswolds.
