Dog attacks at Lough Fea outside Cookstown have been highlighted by a Mid Ulster councillor.

At the first meeting of the new Mid Ulster Council’s Environment committee, the councillors considered the alignment of the dog control service, including the provision of an emergency dog warden out of hours service.

Chairperson of the committee, Christine McFlynn said it was vital that the 24-hour dog warden service was maintained.

She said that under the former Cookstown council, the warden had been called out on numerous occasions to deal with attacks by dogs on people at the popular Lough Fea, which attracts huge numbers of walkers.
