BEND, OR -- Three dogs reportedly killed a pair of Alpacas and injured several others, early Thursday morning. Deschtues County deputies arrived at the ranch on Arnold Market Road and found the dogs still in the pasture, although they ran off when deputies entered the area. 


Two Suri Alpacas were initially killed during the attack, two others had to be euthanized due to their injuries, and a fifth is being monitored. The Siberian Huskies were tracked to a residencea bout two miles away and were taken into custody, pending the results of a Dog Control Board of Supervisors hearing.


On July 4, the dogs' owner, Norman Jensen, was cited for three counts each of Animal Nuisance, Unlicensed Dog and Dog vs. Livestock.
