Monchy farmer, John Cherubin, woke up this morning to what he says has become a familiar sight – the death of his livestock.
Four of his goats, three of them pregnant, had been killed.
The leg of one of the animals had been severed, while four other animals have gone missing.
Cherubin told the Times that almost every year at this time his animals suffer the same fate.
He disclosed that last year nothing happened.
According to Cherubin, he was hoping that the situation would continue this year because he had fixed up the fencing around the enclosure where the animals are kept.
“I will not say is evil but if that is what is happening to me I am still alive and well, praise the Lord,” he declared.
Although asserting that he has gone through the experience of having his animals killed on more than ten separate occasions in the past, Cherubin revealed that he loves farming which has become his means of living.
As a result of the most recent incident, he has been left with one female goat.
However he has expressed fears that history will repeat itself if he breeds the female.
“As soon as they multiply, the same thing might happen again,” Cherubin lamented.
