AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Eight goats owned by Richmond County were killed in a dog attack Thursday, according to Augusta Animal Services.
About 13 goats were being used at a retention pond of Spirit Creek Road to help maintain the grass and brush. Five of those were killed by the dogs, and three others had to be euthanized after the attack.
Four other goats are being treated for injures, and one goat was not injured at all.
The Richmond County Sheriff's Office and Augusta Animal Services are trying to determine if the dogs who attacked have owners.
