Two dogs have been destroyed after sheep were attacked on a farm in Thankerton.

Last Monday morning, July 25, two Alaskan malemute type dogs got into a field on a Thankerton farm, mauled one sheep to death, and severely injured another. A police spokesman said that both dogs had to be destroyed as a result of the attack.

A person alleged to be the owner of the dogs will be the subject of a report to the Fiscal.
