Pack of Dogs Attack Goats at Monroe Zoo

Two Boer goats at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens & Zoo in Monroe were attacked by a pack of stray dogs over the weekend and suffered injuries so severe they had to be euthanized.

Zoo Director Joe Clawson tells The News-Star the dogs dug under a fence Sunday morning to enter the field where the goats were grazing. No other animals were injured. He said the fence has been secured.
