In an update to this story about animal attacks in Kentucky.
Shelby County Animal Control says they may know what’s been happening to animals randomly attacked in the area.
An officer says a pit-bull may have been terrorizing the community since reports surfaced in mid-December about a mysterious animal attacking livestock.
He says two women saw the pit-bull attacking their dog and was able to pull it off of their dog and tie it up until animal control could take it away.
The rogue animal is friendly towards humans but attacks the goats. This does seem like a more plausible explanation than the hype suggested in the media (werewolf, chupacabra). As we noted in the first piece, many locals figured early on it was a dog attacking the livestock.
