L.A. County Sheriff's Department officials are investigating the deadly mauling of dozens of goats by pit bulls in the Lake Los Angeles area.

Three dogs began attacking goats Monday afternoon on a property at 164th Street and Avenue Q, said Deputy Michael Rust of the Lancaster sheriff's station.

Animal-control personnel and sheriff's deputies responded and found 42 goats had been killed, he said.

The dogs were gone by the time authorities arrived, officials said.

It was unclear whether the dogs had since been caught.
