The Department of Agriculture has resurrected Bonzo the dog from its 1980s TV ad ‘Bonzo wants to go out’ which highlights dog attacks on sheep.

It has been relaunched on YouTube to remind dog owners that the message is still the same almost 40 years later, and that worrying sheep is as big of an issue as ever.

One YouTube viewer quipped: “You wouldn’t be allowed show that on the telly nowadays without first saying ‘contains scenes which some viewers may find distressing.”
