Sheep being attacked by wild dogs in Jertih, Terengganu

JERTIH: Livestock farmers especially sheep rearers in three villagers here are concerned for the safety of their animals as well as residents due to the presence of wild dogs in the area.

A sheep rearer, Mohd Aliff Mohd Ariffin, 34, claimed that wild dogs had attacked and killed 18 of his sheep this month.

"About five wild dogs entered my sheep farm in Kampung Bukit Puteri and attacked the animals.

"The dogs only mauled the sheep but did not eat them.

"I no longer allow sheep to roam freely and keep them confined in the barn for fear they may be attacked by the wild dogs," said Mohd Aliff, who estimated his loss at about RM5,000.

Mohd Aliff said this was the first time his sheep had been attacked since he started rearing sheep about seven years ago.

Another farmer, Hassan Abdullah, 56, said the wild dogs attacked and killed three of his sheep last Wednesday.

He said he was unsure if the dogs were the same as those which attacked Mohd Aliff's sheep but these moved in in a pack and were not afraid of humans. – Bernama
