August 2, 2012 (Deerhorn Valley) – Two dogs running loose attacked and killed an emu inside a pen on the Hornsby ranch on Sierra Cielo in Deerhorn Valley on Tuesday. According to the Deerhorn Valley Antler, the dogs were described as a pit bull mix (white with brown spots) and a brown Shepherd mix. 
One of the dogs remains on the loose. If seen, residents are advised to notify County Animal Control.
“These same dogs have been seen running loose frequently in the last few weeks,” the Antler reported, adding that residents should check livestock more frequently until the dog is found.
