Warning to dog owners L’Ancresse/Pembroke – dead cow on beach

Earlier today the GSPCA were informed of a dead cow that had been washed onto our coast and passed the information to the States Vet.

The Environment Department is advising dog owners that a dead cow (adult) has been washed up on to the rock outcrop in the centre of L’Ancresse/Pembroke bay today.

The body is in very poor condition and it may pose a hazard to dogs if they eat it.

David Chamberlain, the States Vet, considers the cow is likely to be of French origin.
