Ranchers still looking for answers after cattle shootings

Four new cases reported in Bingham County

FIRTH, Idaho -  

UPDATE: Sept. 1 

Four additional cattle shootings have been reported in Bingham County. 
 
Sheriff Craig Rowland says there have been four separate incidents in which cattle were shot in the Wolverine area of Bingham County. None of them were immediately reported.
 
Another rancher claims he lost 10 animals to gunshots in Bingham County.  He did not report the incident to the Sheriff. 
 
So far, there is no evidence there is any direct connection between any of the Bingham County incidents or with the previous eight cases in Bonneville County.
 
Sheriff Rowland has stepped up patrols in the Wolverine area in an effort to discourage any further illegal activity.  

 

ORIGINAL STORY:

Ranchers need help finding out who viciously shot eight cows this past weekend. The senseless act took place in the Fall and June Creek area in Swan Valley.

One rancher lost four cows in this incident, some of which were pregnant.

"It's a helpless feeling, you just kind of wonder what type of person that is but we have to rely on other people to help us stop it," says Ken Davis, Rancher.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Bonneville County sheriff's office at 208-529-1200, the Bingham County Sheriff at 208 785-4440, or the Idaho Cattle Association at 208-343-1615.

The Cattle Association is offering a reward.
