Cow left shocked and injured following dog attack on Malvern Hills

A COW was left with jaw injuries after being bitten by a dog on the Malvern Hills.

The incident happened on Monday, January 30 in the Worcestershire Beacon area.

The dog grabbed the Belted Galloway on the jaw causing severe stress and injuries.

A vet has been out to exmaine the cow and the wounds have been left to heal.

In light of the attack, the Malvern Hills Conservators have reminded dog walkers to keep their pet on a lead while walking on the hills.

Community and conservation officer Beck Baker said: “The attacks are distressing for the dog owner and devastating for the farmer.

“The cattle and sheep are part of the farmer’s livelihood, the loss of an animal or vet bills can be very costly.

“Dog owners should be aware that the Police may be involved following an attack.

“Take away the risk of this happening to you by always keeping your dog on a lead near livestock.”
