A herd of sheep on a farm on McDougal Road were the latest domestic animals attacked by pack of wild dogs last week.
The animals, owned by Eric and Debbie Keller of Deer Park, were being housed at Jim and Doreen Carlsonâ€™s (Mrs. Kellerâ€™s parents) ranch. The dogs killed four sheep and wounded 13 others.
The sheep, the 4-H projects of the Kellerâ€™s four children, were taken to the Carlson ranch on May 30 and were attacked the following night.
Keller said her parentsâ€™ dog barked that night but nothing out of the ordinary.
