Dogs Believed to Be Culprits for Killing Goats
Wednesday, August 10, 2011

 
Bowman, SC (WLTX) - In the Orangeburg County town of Bowman, police and animal control officers are looking for a pack of vicious dogs.

Nathaniel Gaines owns Gaines Mini-Stop in Bowman. He usually keeps a herd of goats in a field across the street from his store.

"I had eleven," he explains.

Bowman police believe dogs attacked the herd of 11, killing all but three of the goats. Gaines says a week and a half later, the dogs struck again, killing the rest of the animals.

"Those three are gone, I don't have any left now," he says. "When they came back the second time, 3 left, one was eaten."

Police believe seven dogs are responsible. With the help or Orangeburg County Animal Control, they have caught three. The other four dogs are still on the loose.

"Animal control has been doing a fantastic job," Gaines says.

Gaines says he was planning on selling the goats. He believed his herd was worth around $2,000.
