Chickens Killed By Dogs At Trefusis

St Mary’s police say dog owners should make sure that their pets aren’t let off the lead near livestock.

It follows a complaint after two dogs killed four chickens housed at Trefusis yesterday.

The owner complained to dog warden Maggie Perkovic and Maggie went to the police.

The person responsible for the dogs has since come forward.

PCSO Shirley Graham says poultry aren’t considered livestock but locally there’s been an informal arrangement where officers will encourage owners to reimburse owners for the cost of the lost birds.
