SAMS VALLEY, Ore. — Deputies from the Jackson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) are on the lookout for a pair of dogs that killed a sheep and then threatened the sheep's owner. The reported attack happened in the 1100-block of Duggan Road in Sams Valley.

JCSO received a call around 1:00 a.m. on Thursday morning, with the caller reporting that dogs were killing livestock. When deputies arrived at the scene, they found a dead sheep on the caller's property.

The sheep's owner said that there were two dogs, and when she confronted them, they charged at her. After that, they fled the area.

Deputies could not find the dogs in the area of the crime scene, and the investigation is ongoing. The sheep's owner described the two dogs as a large tan Shepherd-type dog, and a large black Labrador-type dog. Both dogs wore light-colored bandana collars.

JCSO asks that anyone with information about the dogs or their owners call Deputy Trevor Waldeyer at (541) 774-6800. Refer to case #18-8189.
