Please will everyone walking through the fields around the village keep dogs on their leads during the lambing season.

Sadly the message below has been posted on the Edingale Facebook page.

Sheep worrying on the river meadows south of the church.
Very sadly we lost a ewe lamb (adolescent female) yesterday after another out-of-control dog incident over the weekend. She wasn’t bitten or savaged, but effectively died from the stress of the event. She would have been in early pregnancy. Please please please remember to keep dogs on a lead or under “close control” when entering a field where you can see sheep, or where sheep might be present even though you can’t see them. Thanks.
