Cuttack: The fear of mysterious killer of hundreds of sheep at Niali in Cuttack district again started to haunt the locals as 3 sheep were found dead and two found injured in the cattle shed of Govardhan Swain in Gobindapada village on Sunday.

Reportedly, the circumstances under which the animals were found dead seem to be an attack of a wild animal. The attack is suspected to have been taken place Saturday late night.
