SHEBBEAR PARCEL SERVICE

Since the controversial decision to withdraw the post office franchise from Shebbear, Keith and Anne at South View Stores have tried to maintain a parcel service for the community. The service provided by the shop is under utilised and may be withdrawn as a result. If it is to continue, we need to make greater use of this facility.
More details at South View Stores or at Collect+

WINE TASTING EVENING

Christmas is heading our way again and I would like to invite everyone to our wine tasting here at Shebbear Stores Thursday 27th November, 6:30 - 8:00.

The evening will be hosted by Oliver Tullett of North Coast Wine, our favourite wine merchant, who will introduce you to some wines from smaller producers which, in my view, offer significantly better value for money than the well known brands. We've been testing exhaustively here in the oil syndicate command module and we think that there are some real crackers. I hope you can join us on the night.

SHEEP WORRYING

Following an incident of sheep worrying in the Berry area of Shebbear, I would like to pass on the following information:

Under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 the owner, or anyone else under whose control the dog is at the time, will be guilty of an offence if they allow their dog to worry livestock on agricultural land. Worrying livestock means attacking or chasing any farm animal or poultry - there does not have to be any contact. The definition of 'livestock' includes cattle, sheep, goats, swine, horses and poultry – game birds are not included. The dog must have been attacking or chasing livestock in such a way that it could reasonably be expected to cause injury or suffering or, in the case of females, abortion or the loss or diminution of their produce. If you allow your dog to worry livestock you can be prosecuted and fined, ordered to pay compensation and even have the dog destroyed.

Farmers are permitted to shoot dogs that are worrying, or are about to worry, livestock. This is outlined in the Animals Act 1971 section 9, which also states that the farmer is not liable to compensate the dog’s owner in such circumstances. Any dog which is not a working dog can be regarded as worrying livestock merely by being off lead and not under close control in a field or enclosure where there are sheep. The farmer has to prove that the action was necessary to protect livestock and ensure that it is reported to the police within 48 hours. The dog's owner can then be subject to all the above penalties too.

An offence is not committed if at the time of the worrying the livestock were trespassing, the dog belonged to the owner of the land on which the trespassing livestock were and the person in charge of the dog did not cause the dog to attack the livestock.
