YESTERDAY (Sunday March 1) was the launch of Devon and Cornwall Police's livestock worrying campaign.

Starting on Bodmin Moor, rural affairs officers along with police cadets, special constables and local policing officers spent the day raising awareness of livestock worrying across the force area.

In 2019 on Bodmin Moor alone 43 Sheep were killed as a result of dog attacks and 36 injured.

Police are drawing attention to the fact that on access land, dogs must be on leads between March 1 and July 31, and at all times when livestock is present.
