Several cows have been found shot dead in recent weeks in Bexar County. Elsewhere in Texas, they’ve also been mutilated.
SAN ANTONIO — PETA and Crime Stoppers are offering separate $5,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest of whoever may be shooting and killing cows in the San Antonio area.
Four cows were shot, three of them fatally, along the 9000 block of Elmendorf Lavernia over a two-day span in April. One of them had to be put down because of its injuries.
No potential suspects have been identified, and police haven’t said if they believe the mid-April shootings are connected to similar incidents last week, when surveillance video captured a vehicle leaving the area of St. Hedwig after a shooting.
A family who spoke to KENS 5 said they lost a cow in that April 25 attack. Nearly two dozen shell casings were found in the aftermath. Later that same day, a neighbor who heard about the incident checked on his own cattle, discovering one of his own was shot dead.
Similar discoveries have unfolded in communities closer to Houston, where police are investigating after cows were found dead and mutilated. In one case, a cow’s face was cut along the jawline and its tongue completely removed. In those investigations, a $5,000 reward is being offering by the Animal Legal Defense Fund for any information leading to an arrest and conviction.
