GIRVAN police officers were once again called out to deal with animals blocking a Carrick road at the weekend, this time at Dailly.

Five sheep and a dog were required to be conveyed back to their field from the B714 at Dailly on Sunday afternoon.

It followed a series of call-outs involving farm animals in early November, when Carrick police officers attended three instances in only two days.

On Saturday November 3 Girvan police officers were called to Colmonell after receiving reports of two cows loose on the B734.

On Sunday it was Maybole beasts causing disruption, as police received two calls reporting cows on the A77 south of the town, while on Monday November 5 some wandering sheep were causing concern to drivers on the A719 near the Electric Brae.

In all cases the animals were conveyed safely to their fields.
