Cooper's Hill near Brockworth, is 4 miles southeast of Gloucester
and is on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment.
Cooper's Hill - Animals,
Domestic & Non Domestic
Remember that farm and domestic animals may be
freely roaming on private land at any time.
During the Cheese Rolling event
and for a short period before and after, the area is quite unsuitable for
domestic pets, dogs in particular.
The highly crowded nature of
the immediate area means that animals would be subjected to unacceptable levels
of stress, which, apart from bordering on cruelty to the animal concerned, could
result in unpredictable behavior and possibly tragic consequences for the animal
concerned or indeed any spectator, in particular children.
Whilst, as this is a freely accessible
public area, animals cannot be banned, we appeal to owners to exercise a high
degree of common sense and have regard for the animals & people concerned.
If you are considering leaving
animals in vehicles in the car park, you are reminded to leave the windows open
to ensure adequate ventilation, heat buildup in a closed vehicle, even at this
time of year can prove fatal, leading to prosecution of the owner.
