Three horses and two dogs that were found dead in Monroe County, Kentucky were possibly killed by a “large cat,” the sheriff’s department said.

Officials with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife were called to a home in Tompkinsville “on reports of dead animals.”

When they arrived, officials found three deceased horses, as well as the bodies of a pit bull and a husky.

It is believed that this occurred in the wee hours of the morning and all sign show that it possibly could have been done by a large cat/animal,” the statement continued, adding that members of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife’s diagnostics team were called to examine the animal carcasses.

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s department said the investigation is “ongoing,” adding officials still believe a large cat is responsible for the deaths.

No others animals have been killed at this time.

We highly advise you to please keep a close eye on small children and animals when they are let outside and use caution and be aware of your surroundings,” the sheriff’s department warned in the statement.
