Cattle shot in Sioux County, N.D.
 
The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association (NDSA) and the Sioux County Sheriff’s Department were on the scene in Sioux County again yesterday following a report from a cattle rancher of two cows shot in his pasture near Cannon Ball, N.D. One cow was shot with a small caliber firearm and the other with multiple arrows. The cows were injured and were treated by a veterinarian.
 
These shootings come on the heels of two earlier cases involving multiple dead and missing animals in the same vicinity.  
 
The Stockmen’s Association has a standing reward of up to $14,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible. Anyone with information about this or any livestock-related case should call NDSA Chief Brand Inspector Stan Misek at (701) 223-2522 or (701) 720- 2430 or Sioux County Sheriff Frank Landeis at (701) 854-3481.
 
Misek urged livestock producers to be on the watch for any unusual activity and/or strange vehicles in their area and to notify the NDSA or other law enforcement officials about anything that seems suspicious.
