Urgent appeal to dog walkers

What follows is an urgent reminder from the Nettlebed Estate Manager about the importance of dog control. There was a sheep killed by a dog near Nettlebed yesterday, in a field bordering the Estate Road that heads from the Nettlebed church towards Witheridge Hill/Stoke Row.   Can I ask that dog walkers please have complete control of their dogs at all times and if that’s not possible do not let it off the lead?  A dog chasing sheep causes them extreme stress which can kill them even if they are not attacked directly.  In these difficult times, I appreciate that there are more people than normal needing to take exercise in the countryside but I ask that you respect the property of those who farm the land. Thank you in advance. ...
