Two goats in a fenced pen in a Pasadena yard were attacked and killed by two dogs Saturday, then a neighbor shot and killed one of the dogs when it charged at him, Anne Arundel County police said.

Police said they were called around 11 p.m. Saturday to the home in the 800 block of Woods Road. The goats' owner called the neighbor for help because the animals were being attacked, they said. Police said they believe the Siberian husky that was killed had escaped its property by going beneath a fence. The second dog, possibly a shepherd-husky mix was shot at and was possibly wounded, but ran away, police said.

The owner of the dog that was killed was notified, police said. They also said the dog had not come to the attention of animal control officials prior to this incident. Police are trying to find the second dog and its owner. Anyone with information is asked to call Animal Control at 410-222-8900.
