An unknown force, as some have described it, or a mysterious animal is terrorizing a Monchy farmer’s livestock, tearing parts from the animals, but not eating them.
John Cherubin told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today, (Jan. 4) that he lost several goats on December 30, 2015,something that occurred around the same time, about two years ago.
Referring to the most recent incident, Cherubin said the leg of one of the animals was severed, while four other animals have gone missing. In the past, their blood was sucked out of their bodies.
A livestock farmer for several years, Cherubin, told SNO that he doesn’t want to believe that it is some “evil force”, but he recalled this happening to his father’s cattle, when he was a young lad.
The Monchy resident said he has no reason to believe that dogs attacked the goats and took them away, because he only recently reinforced his fence and he is positive that nothing could enter.
Cherubin said he loves cattle rearing and despite these incidents, he wants to continue doing what he does best, as it is his only means of income. He estimates his losses to be over $2,500.
