A CAMPAIGN has been launched to highlight the harsh reality of livestock attacks and distress caused by dogs.

The Scottish Partnership Against Rural Crime (SPARC) has teamed up with Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to ask dog owners to be responsible.

SPARC is made up of 16 strategic partners from across the rural community and this campaign complements work being done by various rural organisations to combat livestock worrying and the impact it can have on farmers and landowners.

The campaign was launched last Thursday.
