A goat had to be euthanized after it was attacked by a dog in Dauphin County on Friday. State police responded to the 2800 block of White Oak Road in Jackson Township for a report of a dog attacking a goat.

The goat sustained serious injuries and had to be put down, troopers said.

The dog’s owner, Stephen Richard Bowman, 32, of Millersburg, is charged with confinement of dogs.
