LOS ANGELES (AP) - Four stray dogs have been attacked and severely burned with a chemical agent over the past few weeks in Lancaster, with two so badly injured they had to be euthanized.

Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control Deputy Director Danny Ubario says they want to know if the attacks on a golden retriever and three pit bulls are related, what chemical or material was used, and if there are any more victims.

Dr. Alan Schulman of The Animal Care Center says these types of attacks have been going on for a couple of years.

He says all of the dogs involved were strays, and the two survivors were named Fergus and Bella by caretakers.

Residents have raised about $20,000 to help with costs.
