HAPPIER TIMES: Four-year-old Holly Denniss-Walker with her beloved cat Dot. Dot was one of three animals, on the family farm, killed by dogs on Sunday night.

TEARS streamed down the rosy cheeks of Trinity and Holly Denniss-Walker as she grieved over the horrific loss of her dearly adored pet and farm animals.

Jill Walker and Viv Denniss returned home with their daughters on Monday morning from a relaxing weekend at the beach to discover their cat and goat maliciously killed and a sheep terribly injured.

It was eight-year-old Trinity who found her beloved cat Dot mangled at the family farm on Meissners Road.

The lifeless goat was found down by a creek on the property.

As tears welled up in Jill's eyes, she described how the goat looked like it was cruelly killed in a bloody attack.

She also told the Central Telegraph how she was saddened that her eldest daughter Trinity, who turns nine in two weeks, found Dot viciously mauled.

The only witnesses were family friends who said they saw three dogs running out of the farm in full flight towards town when they arrived to lock up the animals on Sunday night.

It was then they made the shocking discovery of a fatally wounded sheep in the pen and couldn't locate the cat or the goat.

Jill's concern is now for her family's and other children's safety.

“I am worried about my two young girls playing outside, especially my four-year-old who loves being out with the animals,” Jill said.

“I'm also very concerned for any other children around the area and even scared for my own safety.”

Jill and Viv always wanted their children to grow up on a farm and now their dreams have been dampened.

“We have only been out here for eight months and it's our dream come true to live on a little farm and to have this happen is just horrifying,” Jill said.

The dogs were described as one large dark-coloured dog and two medium tan dogs.

Jill and Viv said they had never seen dogs of that description around the area before.

If you have any information or have seen dogs of this description around the Meissners Road area please contact the council on: (07) 4992 9500
