A CHICKEN owner whose cockerel was savaged by a dog has urged cliff walkers to take responsibility for their pets.
Les Laurens Lane, Torteval, resident Kevin Smith, 53, said he had had enough of dogs attacking his poultry after his two-year-old cockerel, Robbie, died.
‘I left my field [just south of the Prevote Watchtower] at 4pm and at about 6.30pm my dad came past to say he seen a load of feathers and thought a dog had killed one of my chickens,’ he said.
The cockerel died yesterday afternoon following the attack on Thursday.
