LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) – This week’s slaughter of 10 goats at a West Texas school district school barn, initially blamed on gunshots, is now being blamed on dogs.

Eight other goats were found injured early Monday at the Lubbock Independent School District Ag Barn. The slaughter came weeks after 29 goats were found shot on July 15, all but one fatally.

A school district spokeswoman had initially blamed the Monday slaughter on gunshots. School district Police Chief Jody Scifres tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that investigators have determined that three dogs attacked the goats Monday morning.

Scifres says the dogs remain on the loose. No suspects have been found in the July shootings.

The livestock animals that live at the barn are used to train students.
