It is an offence for bulls to be kept in a field crossed by a public right of way unless:

  • the animal is less than 10 months old, or
  • is not a recognised dairy breed and is with cows or heiffers


  • Walkers should keep dogs under close control at all times when near livestock - it is an offence to allow dogs to chase or attack livestock. 

  • Always bag and bin your dog's poo and never leave bags of dog poo lying around, even if you intend to pick them up later. 

  • Landowners should not keep a dangerous or intimidating dog on a public right of way, we will take action if a dog deters people from using the route.
