Aaron Reyes, deputy director of the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control, said the dogs were captured Monday night, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday
A fourth pit bull remained at large.
Reyes said it appeared the attack on 42 goats in a farm corral was related to pack mentality. "They just fed off one another's energy and mischievous behavior," he told the newspaper.
The captured dogs had no identifying tags.
