Eastern South Dakota Authorities Probe Cattle Shootings

August 31, 2017 08:44 AM

Authorities in eastern South Dakota are investigating incidents in which cattle have been shot in pastures.

Moody County Sheriff Troy Wellman Tells the Argus Leader that a calf in the eastern part of that county was shot in the hip this week. Authorities believe a small-caliber gun was used. The calf is being treated.

Wellman says other cattle in the area have been shot and have died, and a woman in South Shore, about 20 miles southwest of Milbank, says her family lost five calves to bullet wounds last week. Each calf was shot multiple times.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Moody County Sheriff's Office .
