Peak District rangers install new warning signs

Rangers at the Peak District have installed new warning signs to remind walkers to keep their pets under control.

The move has been made after sheep were found dead in the park, with officials telling visitors that, by law, they must guarantee that their dogs are kept on a lead whenever they are around farm animals.

Rangers north area manager Jenny Waller warned: "For its own safety, never let a dog approach or chase wildlife and farm animals - your dog can get kicked, trampled or lost, and it could be legally shot for chasing farm animals."

Ms Waller emphasised that animals such as sheep, lambs and hares can be easily disturbed by dogs.

Dogs' potential risks to health and safety were also put under the spotlight in a recent BBC report, which revealed that the animals have been banned from the inner region of Wiltshire's Longleat estate.

Officials at the estate have told dog walkers that the animals are a danger to children.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801321599-ADNFCR
