Colorado Authorities Search for Livestock Shooter

August 11, 2016 03:40 PM

Authorities in eastern Colorado are offering a reward for help finding the person responsible for shooting and killing cattle.

KMGH-TV reports that the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office says someone is killing cattle north of Hugo and leaving them to lie and rot in the pastures. The most recent shooting was July 30, but investigators say they've been tracking livestock killings since 2013.

Authorities say a total of five cattle and seven antelope have been killed.

Capt. Michael Yowell says the sheriff's department is offering a $10,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest. He said the shooter or shooters could face multiple felony charges.
