Starting a short walk by Goldrill Beck and Brothers’ Water this afternoon I was stopped in my tracks by this poster. What was such a gruesome image doing in such a beautiful place?
The National Trust appears to have concluded that shock tactics are necessary. Far too many sheep and lambs are attacked by dogs each year. Something has to be done to stop it. I hope this poster has the required effect, even if it does make for a somewhat disturbing start to an afternoon walk.
