This story is just odd and weird . I work 1/2 mile from where this happened. It is smack dab in the middle of a sprawling big city close to the zoo. These were guard llamas and coyotes usually fear them.



LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Animal Services is investigating after several llamas were found dead at a farm near the Louisville Zoo. It happened early Monday morning at the Louisville Llama Farm on Schuff Lane near Beargrass Creek. Neighbors described hearing what sounded like a fight between animals. Owners would later discover six slain llamas scattered throughout the farm. "They're all guard llamas. I mean, a lot of people have one or two llamas because that's all it takes to protect a herd," co-owner Dale Hill said. "We have a whole herd of guard llamas. You think they'd be able to protect themselves." Seven other llamas were hurt in the attack. At this time, authorities do not know what attacked the livestock. A veterinarian who examined the llamas said the wounds appeared canine in nature, but LMAS could not confirm whether it was a coyote, dog or other large animal. Several coyote sightings have been reported in the Strathmoor Village area, about 2 miles away from Schuff Lane.

What would kill 6 llamas? Did something escape from the zoo and they are just not reporting it? I highly doubt coyotes did this.

Kentucky is a Squatchy place. In fact, it's the fifth Squatchiest state in the U.S. That's according to records compiled by Charlie Raymond who founded the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization in 1997. Its purpose: "to prove the existence of and (provide) protection for these magnificent creatures."

At a recent presentation in Lexington, Raymond indicated there have been 435 sightings in Kentucky, at least one in each of the 120 counties. Anderson County holds the record with two dozen reports of Sasquatches, which they call Kentucky Wildmen.

Apparently Squatches have been around at least since the 1700s when settlers reported seeing Monkey Men near Mammoth Cave. Squatches go by other names in the state as well, like Backyard Bandit, Beast of Land Between the Lakes, Spottsville Monster, Waddy Werewolf, Yahoo and Red Eye.

Interesting, there was a similar incident in a thread in rural North Carolina this morning. 78 year old lady was found dead, cause still under investigation, canine dna was found.

A lot of mention of wild, domestic dogs or coyotes in that thread.

Llamas are no joke, though I prefer guard donkies, talk about bad asses (pun intended)

Good reason to carry, something, at least a walking stick, preferably a gun.

It could be lots of things, but sounds like the work of feral domestic dogs in a large pack. Coyotes and wolves rarely kill for fun, but I have heard of several cases of either feral dogs, or even a group of outdoor "pets" that just "get out" together and wreak havoc, killing for sport.

Yeah, I started that thread. Nothing more was heard about it. I tried to post a picture of the area, but couldn't upload it. Look up Louisville Zoo and look for 1500 Schuff Lane. It's right in the middle of a big city in a small wooded area.

Thanks to my lovely wife, she reduced the size of the area in question.




The red pin is where the llamas were killed.

There are no packs of feral dogs running around in this city. Metro animal services is all over the animal situation here- and it was def in their turf. In 5 years here I've only ever seen one stray and someone was in the process of picking it up. There are no dogs running loose period. I thought it was really odd when I moved here but I'm used to it now.

Jeez, that looks barely 2 or 3 football fields from the edge of that zoo.

In all fairness, something was there and animal control wasn't all over it. If something came from outside, there is just as much chance it was dogs, as coyotes or wolves, and dogs tend to kill for sport when they get loose.

It generally takes pack behavior to take out something like a llama, barring a big cat -- which generally won't kill a bunch of stuff. It is possible that it is just a large pack of coyotes. They simply have no fear when the pack is large. They may have taken out the "guards" once they started getting harassed on the hunt. A small pack is afraid of a large dog. A large pack will lure the dog with a few scouts and then the pack will kill it. The same probably goes for a llama(s).
