A LAMB was stuck on a cliff ledge at Duckpool, Bude, for two days after allegedly being chased off the edge by a dog not on a lead.

The incident took place on Saturday, April 3. The RSPCA and Coastguard were contacted but rescue attempts were deemed to be ’too dangerous’.

One distressed local said the animal was ’cold, hungry, scared and being left to die slowly’.

The lamb has now been shot by the farmer.
