LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – The Lee County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify and locate the owners of several dogs that caused physical damage in the area.

On Dec. 28, the Lee County Sheriff's Office received a report of a group of dogs roaming the 700 block of Lee Road 78 Camp Hill.

Pam Revels says three different attacks happened last Thursday on her Lee Road 78 property.  20 of her animals were injured,  6 goats and 4 sheep that were pregnant died during the attack.

"There was a goat lying down I could tell she was hurt, there was another one in front of the shed, and then four more dead around the shed," Revels said.

According to Alabama law, you must keep your dogs under control and to not let them roam at large. Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones says the owner of these dogs could face charges.

"There’s a charge associated with that, and of course the issue is restitution could apply based on the animals being destroyed," Sheriff Jones said.

Revels showed News Leader 9's Parker Branton some of the animals that were still alive but severely injured. One ram had his ear ripped off, a number of goats, sheep, and lambs were also scratched up.

“I don’t feel safe to even put them back out in the pen and I don’t feel safe for anyone else around here," Revels said.

If you have any information about this case please contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at 334-749-5651.
