RAEFORD, N.C. (AP) — A Hoke County landowner says a pack of dogs went on a rampage at a farm and killed at least a dozen animals, including a 500-pound (226-kilogram) llama.
Landowner Pat Belskie tells media outlets the dogs dug under a fence at the Hoke County farm, near the Moore County line, on March 28 to get at the animals. She said the dogs killed a dozen baby goats, adding that the llama tried to protect the goats but the dogs “ripped him apart.”
Belskie says at least three dogs were involved, adding that they have been terrorizing livestock in the area for months. She posted on social media that the same dogs are believed to have attacked a neighbor’s animals the next day, killing a goat.
