A Montcalm County man is hoping a century-old law will provide him and his wife with financial restitution after a vicious dog attack resulted in the deaths of eight of their sheep. On Monday, the Montcalm County Law Enforcement & Courts Committee considered a request from Kenneth Lund of Sheridan. Lund wrote commissioners a March 22 letter detailing a Nov. 20, 2012, incident in which a flock of 28 sheep owned by Lund’s wife Deb were attacked by two neighborhood dogs. Six ewes were killed by the dogs and two more ewes had to be euthanized due to the severity of their wounds. The remaining sheep were all injured in some form or another.
