Graham Hatton, from the council, and PC Ben Rusden, from MAKI Police, (second and far right) have been explaining to colleagues from Dumfries and Galloway how organisations in Argyll and Bute work together to tackle livestock worrying and prevent further cases happening.

The methods used by our local police and council have been highlighted as a way forward for other local authority areas in Scotland.

As the weather improves, and with the Easter weekend approaching, more and more of us enjoy getting outdoors with our dogs. Please remember we are now at the height of the lambing season. Keep your dog under control, preferably on a lead, when near farm animals and please try and stay out of fields where there are lambs. More information on responsible dog ownership can be found on our website:
