This is the Dog the Conservation says !!!!
I have moved all Items relating to the Sheep Attacks
here so the main page is not so depressing !!
We welcome your comments on this and inform others also !!
Well it is final !! We received another email from the
Missouri Conservation Department stating that according
to their EXPERTS ,the animal killing our Sheep is a DOG !!
( I think we should see where our money is going if these are experts)
I sent an email with pictures saying this is not so but they are the EXPERTS !!
I had sent the following info to them in which they made there decision on what is killing the Sheep !!
1. The attacks started in April of 2009 and continued until September of 2009.
Now after September the killings stopped until APRIL of this year 2010 ! Does a dog go on vacation???
2.The attacks were about 3 weeks apart.
3. There were 11 Sheep killed in this time ! (loss cost of over $4,000.00)
4. Of these 4 were found fresh with blood still flowing.
5. Of these nothing on the body was eaten except part of the head.( no belly, no bag, no nothing)
6. The throats were ripped out also.
7. A trail of wool was seen up to the body.
8. They were killed in the open within yards of pens with lambs and other sheep.
9. I found 3 Sheep killed in same pasture area.
10.We never did find 2 Sheep. ( I walked nearly half of our farm and never found a trace.)
I sent photos of all this to the department also.
Now the question I have is what dog goes by a schedule !
What dog kills but eats nothing ?
What dog would rather chase down a 200# Sheep
rather than go after a small lamb in a fenced pen ?
The killings started up in April of this year again!!
The round of killings this year is now up to 3 dead and 2 wounded
bad enough to get the vet to sew them up !!
The killings are different this year in that the
attacks occurred in the pen where they are kept at night and
The animals were not killed right away,but had a large hole eaten in their backs along
with scratches and holes in their sides.
We had to put them down as they were still alive when found.
The last attack it ate the back and attacked 9 other Sheep putting scratches and holes in them.
The next night it came back and attacked Sheep
in another area killing 1 and wounding another!!
This is a different animal and attack method yet it is a DOG according to the EXPERTS !!
WELL THIS IS THE FINAL SAY ON THIS I GUESS,
SO I WILL CONTINUE TO GO OUT MYSELF AT 3:00AM AND GUARD MY SHEEP !I would like your comments on this,so please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and put sheep in subject line.
Well here are the pictures of the poor ewe that survived this attack (by dog) or a LG cat!!
