Do you think it is acceptable for farmers to shoot and kill dogs on their property?
It was reported that a Wexford farmer has lost more than €20,000 worth of livestock in three separate attacks by dogs on his sheep over the past six months.
The latest incident happened last week when more than 15 of his sheep were savaged to death and several more injured in an attack by two dogs.
The farmer said that he shot another dog last week that was in his field. He explained that he called him back, got him in a trailer and shot him.
The farmer appealed to people to keep their dogs under control.
So is it ever acceptable for a farmer to kill a dog?
