Baby Sheep.

PORT LAVACA (AP) — Calhoun County authorities have assigned a deputy and investigator to the continuing theft or mutilation deaths of Barbado sheep outside Port Lavaca.

Nineteen sheep are dead or missing from a 10-acre property since March, including one vanishing and two killed last week.

Sheriff George Aleman tells The Victoria Advocate the throat of one female animal was cut and its reproductive organs removed.

Tracks in the ground indicate one sheep likely was cornered and then caught. Aleman says a male animal was either shot or stabbed and run into a pond.

Aleman says he’s assigned a deputy and investigator to the case. Owner Wayne Daggs says he’s not inclined to spend nights with the sheep and mosquitoes because it could take weeks or months to find out who’s responsible.
