FARMER AARON CROCKETT OF McDowell County is worried about a series of attacks on animals. Something has attacked and killed seven cows on his dairy farm during the last month. There are some bears and wildcats up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, but no one has seen a bear near Crockett’s farm for 20 years. McDowell County police say, “Maybe it’s a large dog. Nobody saw the attacks.” Mr. Crockett is guarding his fields at night with a shotgun.
