A man has been charged after 65 lambs were attacked by two dogs at a farm.
Both canines were put down following the incident near Turriff on Friday, December 15.
Police Scotland said 37 lambs died and another 28 were injured.
Sergeant Caroline Gray said: "Sheep worrying not only has obvious financial impact on farmers where livestock is killed or injured but the day-to-day effect on the animals who survive can be a major issue.
"The last thing a farmer will want to do is destroy another animal, however, they are within their right to shoot dogs worrying sheep on their land as a last resort to prevent further injury."
A 34-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident.
