Jackson -

Officials say dogs have killed a klipspringer at the Jackson Zoo.
    
Zoo spokeswoman Angela Shepard says officials are double-checking fencing surrounding the 110-acre facility.
    
Shepard tells The Clarion-Ledger that three dogs attacked the klipspringer, a small member of the antelope family, in its savannah enclosure.
    
She says zoo officers heard the commotion caused by the dogs and raced to the antelope enclosure, but were unable to save the klipspringer.  No other animals were injured.
    
She says the enclosure also holds gazelles and antelope and replicates their natural habitat.
