LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Independent School District Superintendent released information about new security measures at the LISD ag farm.

The superintendent, Dr. Berhl Robertson Jr., outlined the plans to replace the current four-foot fencing with six-foot fences with barbed wire on top. He also discussed additional lighting and video cameras that would be installed as short-term measures.

"Our goal really is to secure the property and the animals from any dogs that come along," he said.

School officials report 38 goats were killed and eight were injured over the past two months.

Lubbock ISD police say they're still searching for leads from the July shooting that killed 18 goats and injured another 11, and there is still a reward for any information. Ten of the injured goats had to be put down due to their injuries.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact LISD police at (806) 219-0212.

Then on Aug. 8, officials say dogs killed 10 goats and injured another eight.

LISD's 2020 long term facilities plan, created back in 2010, includes extensive renovations to the ag farm. Those are still being reviewed.
