A Monroe County man told authorities he was tending to his livestock Saturday when he saw two dogs bite his donkey around the head and throat.

When he shot at the dogs, they left his property. The donkey died shortly afterward.

Now Monroe County deputies are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the two dogs and their owners. The incident happened on Blount Road and the dogs left traveling toward Ga. 42 and Brownlee Road, according to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office news release.

Both dogs were described as pit bull terrier types. One dog had a reddish tan coat, and the other had a tan coat with black and white spots.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office at 478-994-7043.
