Smyrna woman: Dog attacked son, killed goat

A Smyrna woman says a neighbor's dog tried to attack her son and killed her pet goat on Tuesday.

When deputies arrived at the Canaan Church Road home Tuesday evening, the 31-year-old woman said when she got home she noticed the dog in the yard, according to a York County Sheriff's Office report.

The woman's son went to check on their pet goat, which was dead. She said it's the second time the dog has attacked the goat.

The neighbor had threatened in the past to shoot anyone who interfered with his dog, the report states.

The woman called animal control, but they told her to file a police report, the report states. Deputies could see the dog on the property when they arrived, but didn't see where it went. The woman gave them the name of the neighbor she believes owns the dog.
