Police investigations are continuing today into the death of a ewe, which was reportedly attacked by a dog on a farm near Houghton.

Officers were called at 10.30am on Friday to a report that a dog had attacked several sheep.

No other sheep suffered injuries.

The Houghton Estate did not wish to comment.

  • It may not have been a dog at all, there are many other predators which could have done this and without witnessing this I don't think anyone should speculate that it was a dog. And no, I am not a dog owner.
