A Kilkenny farmer woke up on Sunday morning to find a number of his sheep had been savaged by marauding dogs.

The incident occurred at Ballinalacken, Ballyragget.

One poor animal ran through a fence down a drain and was still savaged (see below). 

The farmer affected asked where dog owners were when their pets were roaming the country killing sheep.
