Livestock Worrying


Following a recently reported case of Livestock worrying in the Derbyshire Dales area the owner and dog have been identified and the dog destroyed. The dog in question killed one sheep and injured 3 others.

We take matters of livestock worrying seriously and understand the financial impact this can have, especially at this time of year.  Although we accept it can be difficult to identify the dogs and their owners please still report it to the police, the above proves positive results can be achieved.  This will only assist in promoting the issue and hopefully lead to greater awareness amongst dog owners.

Please report any cases of livestock worrying via 101 or alternatively if you have any information relating to livestock worrying or any other rural matters please e-mail

Anyone that may have seen Mr Kubiak or knows of his whereabouts is asked to contact Derbyshire police quoting incident number 275 of April 12.

It’s great to see Big Bill back at the helm at Leatherbritches. Mrs. Monty and I called in to pick up a few plants and found Bill in top form. Our quick stop took an hour and a half (boy can Bill talk, 🙂 ) and we came away loaded with a great selection of plants not to mention some great tips on dealing with slugs and snails. This involved vaseline, garlic and copious amounts of boiling water so probably best not to go into details here!
