More Livestock Killed in South Central North Dakota

October 28, 2016 11:40 PM

More farm animals have been killed in south central North Dakota's Morton and Sioux counties.

The North Dakota Stockmen's Association says four bison were butchered in a pasture, and two cows in another pasture were killed and burned.

Over the past five weeks, more than a dozen animals in the region have been killed or injured, and nearly three dozen others have been reported missing.

The incidents are near the site where people have gathered to protest the Dakota Access oil pipeline, but the Stockmen's says there is no evidence that there is any connection.

The rancher group is offering a reward of up to $14,000 for information that helps crack the cases.

  Be Careful! Lies come from media in North Dakota! Look carefully at the total Attack on not only Constitutional and civil rights freedoms but atrocities against Geneva rules against shooting Medics. Mercenaries are hired by DAPL That loosed and sic d attack dogs on a child...bit in the face..ran snowmobiles Along cars...some were local Run people off the roads. And the list goes on...I DO NOT DOUBT they would Try to intimidate local Ranchers that just Filed a lawsuit against DAPL for threatening them to sign away their land, yes they who have ample guns Would not hesitate to kill cattle, bison And try to turn locals against water Protectors...or as the lawsuit says intimidate the ranchers....look into what Is really happening in ND then ask TEXAS Ranchers what they experienced! Thing is...if this corp. Is not stopped... We are NEXT!

  With all the DAPL and Morton County surveillance going on around the protest sites, why is there no video or photographic evidence showing these slaughtered cattle, or the dramatic relocating of thirty head of cattle.
