Fairfax Animals Recovering After Attack

Fairfax County police say four barnyard animals are recovering this morning after being attacked over the weekend at a farm park not far from a similar attack last month.

Police say two goats, a calf, and a chicken were cut with an unknown object sometime late Saturday night or early Sunday morning at Kidwell Barn in Frying Pan Farm Park in Herndon.

Veterinarians say the injuries don't appear to be life threatening. The calf and one of the goats are under a year old. Park caretakers say since the young animals are bottle-fed, they most likely would approach anyone with the hopes of being fed.

The attack comes one month after three horses were slashed in a barn adjacent to Frying Pan Farm Park. Right now investigators say it's not clear if the two incidents are related.
