DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -An animal cruelty case in Duncan is under investigation after two goats were found brutally murdered and placed on display for their owner to find.

**Warning, this story may be too gruesome for some readers.**

Kathy Miller says she made the gruesome discovery Monday afternoon when she stepped outside to feed her three goats. She says two of their throats were slit and both of them were speared through the stomach with a sharpened mop handle.

A year ago, she got a letter in the mail that read

"Get out of our neighborhood before your pets start being killed off one at a time."

She believes that letter was written by one of her neighbors. She says several people living in that home have screamed at her and shaken their fists while walking by her house.

Miller is still understandably distraught after discovering her beloved pets dead.

"I started walking around the trees and I saw them laying on their side. They were all puffed up where the sticks had gone into their stomachs. How could anyone do that to a living, breathing, sweet animal," Miller said.

Miller says the one goat that was spared was so traumatized he stood paralyzed for more than a day.

"For 36 hours he was frozen, just frozen. His eyes were just glassy because of what he saw," Miller saw.

What's even scarier, Miller says she believes her own life is in danger.

"They don't want me to make it to 80. I know they want me dead...it's not that they wanted those goats dead, they want me dead," she said.

She says she believes she's been targeted because she's an animal lover. While she can't prove who killed her pet goats at the moment, she says their hatred has her on a mission to make sure the public is informed about what happened in hopes in won't happen to someone else.

"If people don't turn him in and they get away with it, I hope they haven't moved out of town is what I'm hoping. If they get away with it they'll got to people. I have no doubt about it.

Miller says she's placed Stormy, the surviving goat, on her back porch in an attempt to help keep him alive. She says her son and grandson helped her bury the other goats, Misty and Muggie, across the street where they were found.

Miller says right now, the police don't have any leads, but ask if you hear anyone around town talking about the incident to call the Duncan Police Department at 580-255-2112.
