MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A pack of dogs killed four animals at the Louisiana Purchase Gardens and Zoo.

Zoo Director Joe Clawson says five dogs entered the zoo Thursday morning around 8am. Employees shot and killed two of the dogs as they were attacking the animals. Three antelope and one guanaco (similar to a llama) were killed.

Monroe Police say the dogs were pit bulls and look like they aren't wild, just escaped from a home. The zoo is working to find the weak spots in their fence and secure the perimeter.
