Thousands of people have signed a petition in a bid to block new kennels at a North-east farm.
The move comes days after councillors on Formartine’s area committee delayed making a decision on whether five buildings on property at East Mains of Ardlogie, near Fyvie, could house dogs.
The proposal has been brought forward by Michelle Wood, on land that was previously an illegal puppy farm.
No breeding licence has been applied for.
But more than 3,000 people have already signed the petition on www.change.org asking for the plan to be stopped.
