i just was away at a fair helping my mom sell soap and i heard my brother start screaming outside. i ran outside and fell on the ground crying. my favorite goat carmelita was just killed by what the DEP thinks is a bear. i went outside and i saw her laying on her side with her stomach, udder, brisket ripped open and she had massive bite marks on her neck from dragging. the DEP said that the bear ran into my barn and grabbed her by the neck and dragged her outside where it killed her. there was blood everywhere. i started sobbing and my dad, twin brothers, and my grandparents are devasted. i only have three goats. and she was the sweetest gentlest one. i am so sad and i needed to write something to warn goat owners about predators. i haven't stopped crying and it was three hours ago.
