A number of miniature horses and a donkey have been killed in two separate mauling assaults by a pack of vicious canines at a San Jose zoo.
The canines attacked 4 miniature horses, together with one named “Candy William,” on Jan. 15 on the Glad Hole Park and Zoo, CBS SF Bay Space reported.
Safety cameras captured the assault, however zookeepers have been unable to catch the canines.
“We checked out our safety digital camera footage and found out that there have been three home canines contained in the zoo that evening,” Glad Hole Zoo Director Valerie Regal advised CBS.
Three remaining horses and a donkey have been moved to a safer enclosure with a six-foot chain hyperlink fence.
However on Jan. 20, the canines struck once more — making their means into the cage by digging beneath the fence line to kill three extra miniature horses and a Sicilian donkey.
“These animals touched loads of lives. They’re actually going to be missed. So our sympathies exit to everyone,” Regal stated.
The zoo caught the 2 largest canines, however the third canine, doubtless a Chihuahua, remains to be on the free. It’s not thought-about a risk to different zoo animals, in response to the report.
Animal Management officers in San Jose count on to euthanize the canines, whose house owners haven’t but stepped ahead.
