According to the Wolcott PD’s Facebook page, the call came in at 1:08 a.m. from the homeowner on Catering Road.
The homeowner stated that his wife woke him up after hearing a commotion in the goat pen. The homeowner ran outside, heard the goat screaming and saw the bear attacking a goat. He fired his shotgun in the direction of the bear and it ran into the woods, unsure if he injured the animal or not.
The goat suffered severe injuries and needed Vet care.
Wolcott police would like to remind others to never let your domesticated pets outside alone in the instance of a predator attack.
