The death happened over the recent bank holiday weekend, and is being investigated by police, with officers warning dog owners they could be jailed if their pets attack sheep.
Officers say the bank holiday weekend saw more people enjoying the countryside across South Yorkshire, but that had come at a cost to the sheep which they believe was attacked by a dog.
Ahead of the Coronation bank holiday weekend South Yorkshire Police rural crime officers had warned dog owners to be responsible following two sheep in Langsett suffering serious injuries from dogs out of control.
