Adama J. Jones, of Scoggins Street, said a small black and tan dog broke into her chicken pen. Eighteen chickens were killed, according to Officer Lt. Tim Fulmer.

“The dog had somehow been trapped in the pen and was still there when I arrived. . .” Officer Fulmer stated. “Animal control was called to the scene at which time they took possession of the dog.
