San Antonio, TX - Between January and March of 2008, loose pit bulls killed at least 23 livestock animals in Lubbock County, Texas. Not far from here is Bexar County, where a recent attack by a "mysterious, wild" dog killed two alpacas and mutilated a third. The attack happened at a ranch on Scenic Loop Road on the far north side.
Workers say the animal bit through the legs and necks of two alpacas and seriously injured a third. As quoted in DogsBite.org's recent report on livestock and horse attacks, "severe head injury, tearing off ears, noses and legs is an attribute of the pit bull breed." A mid-sized tan and white dog was seen chasing after the animals and mauling them. The dog fled when workers tried to catch it.
Deputies are trying to track down the vicious dog and its owner (good luck).
