Three sheep have been mutilated and killed on a Millington farm in a horrific dog attack.

Humberside Police are investigating after three sheep were killed on farmland on Pasture Road, Millington between Sunday February and Monday February 8.

The incident was reported to the local Community Policing Team today (Wednesday February 10) by the farmer who reported that three of his sheep had been attacked by an unknown animal and subsequently died.

It is believed the sheep may have been attacked by a dog off its lead and the local Community Policing Team are investigating.

A spokesperson from Humberside Police said: "The force would like to remind all dog owners that it is their obligation to ensure that their dogs are under control in public and they are advised to keep their animals on leave on farm land. Failure to do so could lead to a prosecution for the owner."

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident and anyone with information should call 101 quoting log 154 10/02/16 .
