East Devon District Council are looking to talk to the owner of a Red Setter dog after a Roe deer was attacked and killed on Harpford Common.
The dog was identified as a red setter with a thick black collar and the incident happened at around 9.30am on Tuesday, October 22. The dog was running loose with its owners nowhere to be seen.
A spokesperson for East Devon District Council said: “We would like to speak to the owner of this dog who we expect will live locally to Sidmouth or Newton Poppleford.
“As with all dogs, if the owners cannot keep them close by and under control, they must keep their dogs on a lead so that more wildlife is not harmed.”
Anyone with information about this dog or the incident is invited to contact EDDC by email: [email protected] or by phoning 01395 517456.
