An unknown animal is attacking, but not eating, livestock in Kentucky, leaving many of the victims with gnawed or detached ears.

According to WAVE News, the attacks have been ongoing for several weeks in Shelby County, Ky. At least five goats have had to be put to sleep due to their injuries, and a goat named Polka-dot has been left with just one ear.

Kevin Cox, the local farmer who owns Polka-dot, has also had several of his bulls attacked, he told the news organization.

Kentucky officials are investigating, but there's no word yet on the culprit in the attacks. Odd livestock attacks often get blamed on supernatural creatures, especially the mythical beast el chupacabra, which means "goat sucker" in Spanish.

El chupacabra is said to suck the blood of livestock and has been blamed for attacks in Mexico and elsewhere. Supposed chupacabra sightings have always panned out to be dogs, coyotes, raccoons and other mammals.

Sounds like some type of bird -- why only an ear ?

Unless aliens are collecting samples.

Been running around in these woods for years, and have never seen a bigfoot, chupacabra, or anything else un-explainable. Seen some wild boar, mountain lion or two, bobcat, and family had bear sightings for years while I was in the military, but that's it. Have even been in the woods after dark, never been attacked by anything. Maybe it doesn't like human ears though... :|
