Gardaí have received almost 50 reports of livestock being attacked by dogs across the country in the past four months, though none of those have been in this county.
In one incident in Leitrim, a dog attacked seven sheep on a farm. The owner was identified and had to pay damages to the farmer and the dog then had to be put down.
