Date of alert:
Tuesday, 19 July 2022
Celia Emmott is calling for police to take action after one of her sheep died and two others were injured during the attack in a field near her home in Henfield.
"I want to get the police to take some action before these dogs kill humans,” she said.
“If my grandchildren were in the field they could well have suffered the same death as the sheep. It is so scary.”
She said the owner of the dogs – ‘large hunting types’ – was in the field with them when the attack happened last week.
She ran out to the field after witnessing the horrific scene through the window of her nearby home.
She said the dogs were not under control.
“When I arrived the owner finally collected the third dog with my help, while a ewe was dying beside me.
