Two lambs killed in dog attack at Langness

Two lambs have been killed in a dog attack in the south of the Island.

The farmer shared images of the injuries suffered by her lambs on Facebook, revealing one suffered a skull puncture, while the other had crushed ribs and a spinal injury.

Kirree Kermode described the incident as heartbreaking, as the lambs were the first to be born at Langness in a number of years.

One of the ewes on the land was also found to have suffered a leg injury, having seemingly tried to defend her lamb.

The Manx National Farmers Union and Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture have been appealing for dog owners to control their animals around livestock during lambing season.
