County officials said a coyote may have killed a sheep at Muscoot Farm in Somers and injured two others on Thursday.

The sheep were found when employees to perform morning farm chores Thursday and noticed a sheep lying in the field and two others limping, said Alexis Joondeph-Breidbart, a spokeswoman for Westchester County.

Muscoot Farm is an early 20th-century interpretative farm museum that is owned and operated by the Westchester County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Conservation.

Although there was no sighting of a coyote, Joondeph-Breidbart said farm staff believes the attack was caused by one.

Employees said the attack on the sheep appears to have occurred in the early morning hours before farm staff had arrived.

A veterinarian was called to take care of the two injured sheep. The deceased sheep was buried in the pet cemetery on the farm's property.

The remainder of the sheep were moved inside the barn for safe-keeping.
