A number of lambs have been killed in the Kildress area.
A stray hunting dog is believed to be responsible for the attacks.
Sheep farmers have raised concerns in recent weeks.
It’s understood that the Mid-Ulster Council dog warden is tackling the situation.
Ulster Unionist representative Mark Glasgow has been working with the farmers affected and the council to find a solution.
He’s appealing to people in Kildress, Ballinasollus and Tulnacross to be vigilant.
Here's what he had to say:
