CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Edward Baugh is still upset about what he said he discovered on his farm in Chesterfield County recently.

"We just found them in the pond and the ears were chewed," said Baugh.

Baugh said he and his family believe dogs attacked five cows on their farm, killing three of them last week.

"It's hard when you lose cows like that," he told CBS 6's Chelsea Rarrick.

He said he has seen dogs on his land before.

"We caught the pit bulls in the lot and they got away," he said.

Chesterfield Police said they are investigating Baugh's report.

They said they have not determined the cows' cause of death, but added it is possible the animals died as a result of a disease.

"That's just something upsetting to see," Dorothy Good, who lives on the farm, said. "To just see them laying out there like that."
