Dog row forces out Peak District beauty spot herd

2019-03-08 | Since 2 Year

The highland herd had been grazing on Baslow Edge for 40 years

A herd of cattle has been forced from a Peak District beauty spot it had grazed on for 40 years after a complaint.

The 30-strong highland herd had roamed Baslow Edge for decades alongside a popular footpath.

Last year the cows, which had young calves, confronted a dog. When the owner complained, farmer Alex Birch was told by authorities to move his herd.

Mr Birch said the issue caused "heartache" and he has had to sell or slaughter his animals.
