Two roaming dogs attacked ewes that had just been sold at the Stortford Lodge Saleyards. Truck driver Jayden Ngatai was loading more than 300 ewes into a truck and watched in horror as roaming dogs began to attack the flock. Two ewes were killed in the attack after the prime ewe sale had finished. The Midlands Rural Transport driver was getting the last 333 ewes onto his stock truck to be delivered to new owners when he two dogs had found a way in. Stortford Lodge Saleyards manager Mark McKelvie says he is grateful for Ngatai’s timing and says if it wasn’t for him there could have been more deaths and did not know of any similar incidents happening in the past. He fears it could have an impact on the saleyards if the dogs are not caught soon.
