NDSU targets owner of dogs that killed sheep
FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota State University plans to seek compensation from the owner of two dogs that attacked a flock of sheep inside a research barn.
The attack Tuesday left a dozen sheep dead. Seven were killed by the two huskies and five others were injured and had to be euthanized. Another six were injured but remain alive and are being treated.
NDSU Animal Sciences head Greg Lardy says the loss likely will be in the thousands of dollars. He says the loss also is tough on staff and students who ``care very passionately about the animals.''
The owner of the dogs was not immediately identified. Authorities planned to cite the owner for having a dog running at large, an infraction punishable by up to a $500 fine.
