The attack is said to have taken place between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in a field near the farm.

Police believe the lambs were attacked by at least one dog and are asking locals who may have been in the area to come forward.

The estimated value of the damage done to the sheep is around £7,000.

Dog owners were also warned to keep the animals on a leash after the attack.

Inspector Stephen Gray said: “An investigation is ongoing to determine the full circumstances of the incident and we are urging anyone with information to come forward.

“Lambing season has begun and worries can stress sheep, which can result in them losing their lambs, as well as injuries that can result in their deaths.

“All of this comes at a significant cost to farmers.

“Dog owners could be prosecuted if their dog attacks farm animals, so we urge them to keep dogs on a leash when walking near farm animals and to ensure they do not run or flee into fields alone .

“I ask all dog owners to be considerate. Please remember that it is your dog and your responsibility to keep it under control.”

SNP-MSP Jim Fairlie tweeted about the incident, saying: “A farming friend just posted: 16 lambs dead and likely more in the coming days!

“Heartbreaking isn’t it!!!! KEEP your damn DOGS on a leash!

“Was away from them for 2 hours and came back to the carnage!!!! I’ve never seen this before!!”

People flocked to the comments to share their thoughts on the “terrible” attack.

One wrote: “Absolutely awful I never take my dogs anywhere near land where there are livestock.

“Unfortunately too many new homes near farmland. People who have no idea what their off-leash dogs can do.”

Another added: “Sickly. Happened on the farm next door to my colleague’s farm a few years ago and I know how distressing and upsetting it was for her. I’m so sorry to see that.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on number 101 quoting incident number 1580 of Monday 3 April 2023.
