Dogs are suspected of killing nine goats, 12 rabbits and several chickens in a series of attacks on farms in New Market.
Frederick County authorities say big dogs are suspected of killing nine goats, 12 rabbits and several chickens in a series of attacks on farms in New Market.
Frederick County Animal Control Director, Harold Domer, said four separate attacks have been reported near Old Annapolis Road and Green Valley Road. The two dogs are described as dark red in color, weighing between 55 and 75 pounds.
"Unfortunatley, we do not have a specific breed," Domer said.
His agency is looking for information about the dogs and their owner.
"The running at large county ordinance does apply to all animals; that the animals do have to remain on the owner's property. If they get off the owner's property, then the owner of the dogs are responsible if they bite someone or kill live-stock," Domer added.
The attacks took place between March 27th and April 1st.
Domer is asking anyone with information on these attacks to call 301-600-1544, or 301-600-2558.
