Dog owner to pay farmer after sheep killed on Isle of Wight
Date of alert:
Tuesday, 2 May 2023
A member of the public has been ordered to pay £300 compensation to a farmer following a dog attack which killed a sheep.
The incident happened on the Isle of Wight on March 14, when a dog off a lead chased sheep which were grazing in a field, before it bit and killed one.
A few days later, the dog owner visited the shepherd to apologise and offered to pay for the loss, according to Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary.
But following a review of the evidence obtained by the force, and in consultation with the victim in this case, the dog owner - a 53-year-old woman - will pay £300 compensation.
