Dogs attack alpacas in Riverside County
Two dogs attacked a group of alpacas Tuesday in Riverside County, severely injuring two of the animals, officials said.
The eight alpacas were on a private ranch in the unincorporated area of Cherry Valley. The owner took the two injured animals to a veterinarian, and it was unclear whether they would survive, the Riverside County Department of Animal Services said.The dogs, both male German shepherds, attacked the alpacas about 8 a.m. The agency cited the owner of the dogs for allowing them to roam.
