Officers are investigating the attack of a two donkeys. The attack occurred last night on a piece of property near Moore Street. The mother and baby donkey were attacked by another animal. The MCSO animal control unit thinks it could possibly be a coyote or a bobcat. The attack was severe. The baby donkey was killed. The adult donkey survived, but sustained deep lacerations to her hind quarters, as well as deep teeth and claw marks to her body. Wildlife experts located large paw prints on the property, and on the property near-by.
The Martin County Sheriff’s Office is warning everyone to pay close attention to your animals, and keep them in a secure pen if possible. This attack happened overnight, and we have not concluded what type of animal did this.
