North Sligo farmer Andy McSharry has said he will shoot any dogs that are found on his land, even if they’re on a leash. This remark follows recent incidents where sheep have been killed by dogs in the area.

In an interview with the North West Today Show on Ocean FM, Mr McSharry said that he will be patrolling the roads around his home with a double-barrelled shotgun, warning dog owners that he would shoot any dogs that were found on his land.

Mr McSharry said this action followed two recent sheep kills in the area, something he had not experienced before.
