Cow injured after youths chase herd through field in Surrey

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 2:43pm 4th June 2020.

Police are appealing for witnesses after a group of youths caused a disturbance at Lower Box Hill Farm in Dorking on Sunday afternoon (31 May).

Between 3 and 3.30pm, a large group of teenagers were seen to swim in the lake near to the farm.

A group of three boys then climbed into an adjacent field to chase a herd of cows.

This caused upset to the animals and resulted in one cow suffering a large, deep wound to its side.

Officers are still establishing the circumstances which led to the cow receiving the injury.

In a statement Surrey Police said:

“We believe the group visit the area regularly and we would like to speak to the individuals involved.

“Patrols will be increased in the area to dissuade any anti-social behaviour.

“Surrey Police would like to remind residents that chasing or threatening animals is not only harmful to the animal, but could also result in potential injury to the person.”

Anyone with information or CCTV footage relating to the incident is asked to call 101, quoting PR/45200056242.
