Cumbrian couple facing unnecessary suffering to sheep trial

A couple from Longtown are to go on trial accused of causing unnecessary suffering to two sheep which had to be put down.

Ivor Davis and Dorothy Nicholson, both 67, of Stackbrae Road, denied committing the offences at Cleuchhead at Beattock between December 2012 and April last year.

Dumfries Sheriff Court heard how they are accused of failing to provide adequate nutrition and veterinary attention for a Jacob sheep.

They are also alleged to have failed to provide veterinary attention for a Mule Suffolk cross.

Trial has been set for July.
