Coyotes or some other predator appears to be the culprit in the killing of a sheep earlier this week south of Pella. Marion County Sheriff Ron Goemaat says livestock killings such as this can be difficult to prevent. The animal, or animals, apparently got into the field through a fence and killed and ate an entire 170 pound sheep.
