So my dad's friend has sheep on his farm and at night he brings them into a corral to keep from predators, well last night something managed to undo the rope on the gate and attacked 20 of the animals, they all have a pretty big hole on the right side of the neck and marks all over the right legs, no signs of tracks or anything like that, any idea of what it could be, the guy says chupacabra but i don't know about that being the culprit lol

Feral dog(s) would be my bet. Could even be a pet. Happens all the time with sheep.

Gotta be a black mountain jagarundi puma lion.

Tracks will be posted soon and the neighbor saw one a month ago and said there are no dogs in the entire county.

A pack of yotes got into some penned sheep near lake O.H. Ivie and killed 8-10 like they killed for the sport of it.

Well whatever it was you can bet when you start asking around town that at least one old guy is gonna tell you about the lion that lives near the creek and he heard it one night it sounded like a woman screaming thatís just standard mountain lion/black panther answer. No matter where in the state Iíve been at least one old man at every stop will have a mt. lion black panther story. Things like a woman screaming, the hair stood up on my neck, daddy said, didnít have a camera with me, when we was kids, all these phrases will usually be in the story somewhere. Itís like thereís a desiganated old man mt. lion story teller in every town and they get together and share the same story.

Had a friend who raised show lambs. Their pet German Shepherd went berserk two days before the Ft. Worth stock show - killed all 4 lambs. Was sleeping like a baby with blood on his muzzle the next morning.

He didnít kill the dog, just gave it away. Better man than me.

That sounds more like a pack of dogs than coyotes.

Did it kill the sheep or just bite them? Back when I lived in California, a state tracker that I knew had to track down a mountain lion that killed about ten sheep in a pen one night. He said that the lion got into a killing spree and just killed all of them for the fun of it. The was on a small farm in Crow Canyon, which is close to Castro Valley and Dublin CA.

Here in TX at my place, I've had to deal with wild dogs getting into my pasture and killing my ducks. They just killed them and left them. Coyotes will kill one and run off with it. Dogs seems to get into the fun of it and just keep going as long as they can find something else to kill.
