    Well, I’ve stared at this picture for a solid minute and I can’t see what’s supposed to be funny/strange/outrageous/naked.

        OH! I see it now. For real. Don’t ask me what it is though because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else.

    Dog: Hey sheep? Watch out for that farmer: he’s gonna steal your lambs.

    That sign has been there for years … .go a bit down the road and the lying’ feckers will tell you it is Hollywood. Well I searched and there is no Tom Cruise ANYWHERE to be seen!

      Mark I have seen at first hand the damage that dogs can do to livestock but the area in question is one of the most famous walking sites in the country so threatening people’s dogs is being crazy. Also in my experience most dogs that attack livestock are set on them by people on purpose.

        1. Drogg

          In my experience the dogs that normally attack livestock are trained to do it and have been set upon them by people. If a dog is willing to savage a sheep like the one in your picture they would be just as likely to attack another dog or small child and have ether been bred to do so or have been ill treated to become vicious.

            Well, in my experience that isn’t quite the case. Even the best behaved dog still has a chanse instinct and sheep are a prey animal that act in a manner that is prone to triggering the chase instinct. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve heard of dogs being put down after attacking people or animals who were “quiet” or “never hurt a fly” or were “great around children”.
            Yes, there are jackasses who’ll teach a dog bad lessons and it’s hard for a dog to understand the finer points between chasing a fox and chasing a lamb at the best of times but most of the cases I’ve heard of involved quiet, house dogs.

            Same here – not the case.
            Grew up in the county and know of perfectly behaved dogs who escaped the house and went straight for the sheep. Sad that the dog was shot, but not one person (including the owner) said the farmer was wring to do so.

            Well I’ve known of people who farmers shot pets in there gardens as they mistaked their dog for one roaming into their fields. I have also seen fellas come down from the north during calving season and release fighting dogs to blood them. I am not saying that sometimes it doesn’t have to be done, but I have never experienced a random family dog wander off and attack livestock but I have experienced trigger happy farmers taking the law into their own hands unnecessarily.

        Personally I think its worth a bit of reposting. That was last year. This is this year – and lambing season. It would be like saying no need to alert people to the dangers of drink driving, because we did that last year, so job done!
