A warning has been issued to dog owners to be responsible for their animals, ahead of the busy lambing season in Spring.

Following a number of dog attacks on sheep flocks throughout the country, the President of the Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association Colm O'Donnell says the laws on dog control must be fully enforced, and dog owners should know where their dogs are at all times.

He also believes more resources are needed to see the full enforcement of the laws on dog control - including a team of part-time dog wardens to assist the dog warden in each country, as well as a national media campaign.
