Residents of Cordova have hired a private company to set up motion sensor cameras in their neighborhood to find out what kind of unknown animal is killing their dogs. According to, there have been three dogs killed and one injured; all of the dogs were in their own fenced yards.

Huge cat-like paw prints have been found, and it has been speculated a bob cat or a coyote may be on the prowl. One of the dogs killed had its throat ripped apart.

Another dog was behind a six-foot high fence.

The attacks are all happening at night, but residents are nervous that whatever the animal is, that a child's life might be in peril.

Residents are now keeping their dogs indoors.

Let's hope the mystery is solved soon.
