Licon Dairy Starts Online Campaign to Replace Animals Killed in Dog Attack, Rebuild Enclosures
Licon Dairy Farm has launched an online campaign to raise the funds necessary to replace the numerous animals that were mauled to death by dogs earlier this week.
A GoFundMe account has been started by Eugenio Licon with the goal of raising $5,000 “to raise money to rebuild enclosures that were damaged during the attack.” Licon also notes that monies donated “will also go to purchase new animals.”
The Lower Valley dairy’s petting zoo -- made up of farm and exotic animals including buffalo and ostrich – was breached by a German Shepherd and a black Pitbull mix, according to a post on the farm’s Facebook.
A total of 10 animals were “slaughtered” and three more severely injured.
The animals killed in this attack included deer, goats, sheep and a swan. Some of these animals we have had for over 10+ years and some born and raised on the farm.
Donations have already passed the halfway mark in just a few hours. Many are also leaving messages, photos, and sharing their memories of visits to the family-run farm and petting zoo.
