Veterinarian backs windfarm probe

A Hamilton vet has called for research into the impact of wind farms on working dogs and other animals.

Dr Scott Shrive, of Hamilton Vetcare, inspected a working dog from a Glenthompson farm that began to exhibit unusual behaviour when a nearby windfarm became active.

He said the highly trained dog became sullen, reluctant to leave its kennel and refused to work, or would run around and be uncontrollable.

The “very shy, sensitive” Kelpie was inspected by Dr Shrive at the request of the windfarm company AGL, but he found no evidence of ill-health or condition that might explain the alleged behaviour.

“It appeared that the wind had to be in a certain direction for the windfarm to have an effect and, (when) the windfarm was switched off, the dog appeared normal,” he said.
