Owners of the Licon Dairy in San Elizario awoke to a horrific scene this weekend, as scores of animals in their petting zoo were killed by dogs.
Via social media, officials with the family-run dairy and Lower Valley attraction announced the incident, as well as the indefinite closure of the much-beloved petting zoo.
They ask the community for help in finding the owner of two dogs in the San Elizario area that were seen on the property. Below is the statement from the family:
We are closing our petting zoo until further notice. We are looking for the owners of a German Shepherd and a black pitbull mix from Glorietta and Quemada street in the San Elizario area.
These dogs came in last night and slaughtered a total of 10 animals and severely injured more. Our entire livestock including deer, sheep and swan were killed. We have had these pets for over 10 years and we are devastated. We ask for help from our community to find the owners so the can be held liable.
We apologize to our customers. Any information on the owners please call us at 915-851-2705
