All in all, they killed outright 2 lambs and 2 ewes, chewed up and maimed 3 more that have had to be euthanized and 2 ewes drowned trying to escape. That is 1/3 of our flock of ewes and leaves us bottle feeding a dozen lambs. I expect to lose another lamb but then again she may pull through.
I also wonder that we have to fence out the dogs rather than just keeping or own animals in. Who lets their dogs wander around all night sniffing for trouble? Too bad its the dogs and the sheep that have to pay the price.
In what I suppose is a bit of an ironic footnote, the big male “Rambo” cowered back at the barn and was just fine thank you very much. Not much of a hero but he does look good.
