LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Lubbock ISD Ag Farm has received a donation of over 15 goats after the dog attacks that killed 10 more of their goats Monday morning.

"This is the agriculture community coming together," Ag farm manager Roger Green said. "They will all jump in to help you out."

That attack was the second one in two months on the LISD goats, after someone shot and killed 28 of them in July.

Since the attacks, Green said he has received calls nearly every day from someone who would like to donate. Seven of the ten goats who were killed in the dog attacks had actually been donated after the shooting.

These 18 particular donated goats came from Central Texas. Green will also pick up more from Bronte, Andrews, Greenville and Olney in the upcoming days.

"I didn't ask for anything," Green said. "These are volunteer donations that someone has personally contacted me for."

This outpouring of support means LISD needs no more goat donations, Green said.

"We can rebuild our herd with these," he said.

LISD also plans to build chain link fences in the Ag Farm that will be dog proof, Green said. No goats will be placed in the area where the attacks happened until the fence is replaced.

Green has still not heard if animal control officers have captured any of the three dogs they set live traps out to catch.
