WACO (AP/KRLD) — Police say two goats were shot and killed on the Magnolia Homes property in Waco, featured on the HGTV television show “Fixer Upper.”
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Sunday that investigators are trying to determine who killed the livestock.
Police believe one or more people entered the property sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning, when arriving employees found the dead goats. The grounds were closed at the time of the shootings.
Swanton called the animal killings a “senseless act.” Charges could include animal cruelty.
The show “Fixer Upper” features husband-and-wife duo Chip and Joanna Gaines rehabbing old homes for clients. Their Magnolia complex includes iconic silos and a market.
Swanton told 1080 KRLD’s Kelli Wiese that they think a lot of people in Waco will have a lot of interest in the case and will want to help the Gaineses.
Messages left with HGTV and representatives for Magnolia Homes weren’t immediately returned Sunday.
