POLICE have issued a warning after several lambs were bitten in a dog attack.

Thames Valley Police' rural crime team received a report of a dog attacking lambs in High Wycombe on Tuesday, April 9.

PC Little and PC Uren attended the scene and "found several lambs bitten and needed Vet attention."

The owner of the dog has been issued a Community Resolution with conditions to complete a "Responsible Dog Owners" course and to pay the vet bills.

Following the incident, several members of the public reacted in horror to the dog attack.

Cyril Benn commented underneath the police post, saying: "Irresponsible dog owners should be banned from having dogs, there's no need for this sort of thing to ever happen."

Sue Prowse echoed this and said: "How is this still happening when the need to keep dogs on a lead when near livestock is so well-publicised.

"No excuses - name and shame."
