DOG owners are being warned to keep their pets under control after sheep were injured in Bishop’s Waltham.

Three sheep were hurt in a suspected dog attack in West Hoe Lane, between 3pm on Saturday, February 16 and 8am on Monday, February 18.

One of the sheep had to be destroyed because of its injuries.

PC Jon Radcliffe, of Hampshire Constabulary Countrywatch, said: “This sort of incident causes horrific injuries to the animals involved and should act as a stark reminder as to why there is legislation in place outlining that dog owners must keep their animal under close control.”
