Table showing animal deaths for 2018

Statistics from the Dartmoor Livestock Protection Society

I now have the details of the RTA's that have taken place since the beginning of the year.  This is up to the 26th May and only shows those that have been reported.  Below you will see we have had 16 sheep, 5 ponies, 3 cows, 16 lambs and 2 Foals killed and 2 sheep, 4 ponies, 1 Cow and 1 Lamb injured.  That makes 42 dead and 8 injured.

Warning - Last year in the same period we had 36 deaths and 3 injuries.

As you can see we are up on last year which is really bad news.  Something really will have to be done.
