Calves killed in Hereford livestock worrying incident

The incident happened between 12.30pm and 1pm on Saturday, June 29, in a field off Holme Lacy Road in the Rotherwas area of Hereford, a police spokesperson said.

Two calves were killed after being chased by the dogs, while a cow, which was also injured in the livestock worrying incident, later had to be put to sleep. 


Livestock worrying is when a dog attacks or chases livestock on agricultural land, and is a criminal offence.

Police are now searching for witnesses who might be able to help with their enquiries.

They want to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and may have seen the dog in the field or has dash-cam or video doorbell footage of either the dog and owner in the area in the minutes before the incident.
