Claudia Schiffer is paying up! As RadarOnline.com has learned, the supermodel is working on a deal to hand over some cash to the farmer whose pregnant sheep was killed by her pet dog.
The stunner’s legal team made the landowner sign a temporary non-disclosure agreement while they hammer out a deal to compensate him for his loss.
The deal is reportedly worth up to $10,000, though Claudia’s lawyers are now drawing up another contract to offer the farmer more cash and settle the case out of court.
As Radar readers know, Schiffer’s German Shepherd, Oscar, ran out of her Northamptonshire property and straight into the farmer’s Culworth farm, where he killed a pregnant sheep and badly injured two others.
“Claudia is devastated this happened and wants the case settled as quickly as possible,” a source exclusively told Radar. “The temporary non-disclosure deal was meant as a sign of good will. And she also doesn’t want the farmer pressing charges as it means her beloved dog may have to be put down.”
The farmer, who has not been named, is believed to have already paid a vet’s bill of $5,000 for treatment given to the two sheep that were wounded. Plus, he had to put down the pregnant sheep due to her injuries, soon before she was set to give birth to her babies, each which would have been worth around $320.
A resident told Radar: “He will also be looking compensation for the fact the rest of his flock will be traumatized by the incident, which may affect their value to him. He’s also worried other ewes will have lost babies over the trauma.”
As readers know, cops were called to a farm on November 14 where they found Schiffer’s dog covered in blood, standing over a wounded sheep. Though the farmer was, of course, enraged that the A-lister’s pet had burst into his land and attacked his animals, police told him he could not shoot the German Shepherd unless he an back into the property.
Schiffer, 48 — who is worth an estimated $55million and who recently moved to Northamptonshire with film director husband Matthew Vaughn, 47 — has accepted a voluntary control order issued by officers that demands her property be properly secured so Oscar cannot escape again.
But social media users have seethed the dog “needs putting down” as the blonde bombshell has three young kids – Caspar, 15, Clementine, 14, and eight-year-old Cosima — who haters believe could be at harm.
This is the fourth time Schiffer and her husband have been reprimanded about their out of control pets — including an incident in 2006 when Oscar was accused of “nipping” a postman and chasing a deer in Stanningfield, near Suffolk, where the couple used to live.
