Savage bull terrier to be destroyed

A Staffordshire bull terrier is to be destroyed after it killed 14 sheep in a series of attacks at a farm.

The first incidents, in which 10 sheep were killed, happened over a number of nights back in February but the dog was not identified.

Four more ewes, all of them pregnant, were then savaged and had to be put down at the same farm in the Briestfield area last month.

CCTV cameras this time recorded the dog in the act. Police later linked the animal, owned by a neighbour, to the other attacks.
