The live trapping is a way of ensuring you DO catch them in the act though... you can't catch it in a trap if it doesn't go near the trap, so a dog in a trap is plenty of proof that the dog has been wandering onto your property.

I'm not 100% on the legalities like I said but here, a farmer is well within his rights to shoot any dog that he sees on his property. I'm pretty sure that it has to be ON his property when it's shot, as proof. Live trapping is one way of making sure of that.

To clarify, I just meant that the dog could be shot, at the farm in question, if it trespasses again, even harmlessly. "In the act" would be chasing or attacking livestock. I'm not saying someone could come to your home and shoot your dog!

Even had you been, Karrot, it probably wouldn't be relevant to me because we are literally a world apart.

I do really seriously doubt that the dog in question would be harming the lambs... I have a strong feeling it's my neighbour's dog (other side), I have found that dog with blood on its face before and no visible wounds on the dog himself. I should tell his owners... he is a terrible wanderer and they honestly don't even try to keep him in :/
