Dogs Who Preyed On Md. Livestock Have Been Killed

NEW MARKET, Md. (AP) — Two dogs responsible for preying on dozens of livestock in Frederick County have themselves been killed.

The dogs, sibling Labrador/mastiff mixes, had killed goats, sheep, chicken, rabbits and peacocks starting late last month between New Market and Mount Airy.

The Frederick News-Post reports that one of the dogs was shot and killed by a property owner while attacking a lamb.

The other was captured in a trap set by animal control officers and destroyed.

Frederick County Animal Control Sergeant Dave Luckenbaugh says dogs of any breed can prey on animals, but husky and malamute-type breeds are most commonly involved in attacking livestock.
