That farmer reported scenes of “a massacre” to Mr Hadley, who rushed to the scene with his shotgun.
West Mercia Police also deployed about 20 armed officers with helicopter assistance to find the dogs.Yikes! That's more like a war zone than a farmer's field.
Mr Hadley said: “When I got to the field I could see the two dogs chewing on one of my lambs.
“When they spotted me they came rushing to the gate.
“They had killed 31 lambs and left 14 injured.
“There were lambs running around with chunks of their face missing and we had to put them down.
“It was horrific to say the least.”What the hell sort of dog takes both barrels and shrugs it off? Either Mr Hadley is as lousy a shot as I am, or these aren't just your average mongrels...
It is believed police have found and seized the two dogs involved in the attack.
A 64-year-old man from Risbury, Leominster, has since been arrested on suspicion of being the owner or person in charge of a dangerously out-of-control dog. He was released on bail until 16 October.I'll be watching this one with interest.
