Police say they would like to speak to the man in the photographer about the incident, which took place on May 6.

Between 1pm and 4pm, a large white dog that was off its lead got into a fenced-off field in Staunton Country Park, near Durrants Road, Rowlands Castle.

It chased a flock of sheep, attacking one in the process, before the owner arrived and put it back on its lead.
