yes, that says it all, nail on head mostly dangerous people, but oddly in recent situation do not think person involved had any interest in poaching or the like and was co operative offering to pay damages, but time will tell. Main point, bull crosses have a very serious side to their nature once the bell rings!Yes totally understand - and sadly those types tend to want revenge - burn your barns down. Unfortunately Police Scotland have minimal interest in dealing with such types. Surprising because in one night they could meet all their targets for criminal prosecutions for the month.
As a last resort you can, plod will be ok about it but expect all manner of sh*t from the animal rights brigade!Does anyone know current legal position on shooting dogs involved in this, not had to do so for long time and had no problem when I did , don’t know if any changes, but may have to do so in future
Bull x lurchers are no different from anything else. Same mentality just built different.
Seems in this case a pet has done it and owners had admitted liability so I'm sure dog men had nothing to do with
Please define dog men within context to avoid doubt, incident in question 10.30 pm, dog owner 300 yards from public footpath, alcohol on breath. Sheep killed 700 yards or so from foot path. Spotted using thermal imaging and approached on been questioned was looking for lost dog. Dog and sheep found police called. Time will tell if dog owner has criminal record as private enquiries been made. Do not know as yet if police will prosecute.Bull x lurchers are no different from anything else.

Not “picking” uptonogood all legal pastimes fine. Yes there are in these parts a very few good lads with permission, the vast majority do not and known to the police, in addition the majority of land owners I talk to have very negative attitudes to running dogs of any stamp, and their owners through personal loss and experience. Maybe things are different in Somerset, I hope they are. Also to be clear I enjoy and appreciate all working dogs including running dogs of all types used responsibly and within the law.
