Two sheep that have been grazing near Wappentake Rd, Heathcote, for several weeks have so far avoided capture.

City of Greater Bendigo animal management officers attended the area twice last month but were unable to locate the animals.

Greater Bendigo’s animal management services co-ordinator Anthony Schofield said it was a safety issue and encouraged residents to report any wandering livestock they see.

‘‘The council takes the issue of wandering livestock very seriously,’’ he said.

Heathcote police’s Senior Constable Jeff Arandt said the police should be called if there was an immediate traffic hazard, otherwise animal control should be contacted.

Reports can be made to City of Greater Bendigo on 5434600, Campaspe Shire on 1300666535 or Mitchell Shire on 57346200.
