Cattle killings plague Northeast Oklahoma
By Charlotte Anne Smith
A rash of cattle killings in northeastern Oklahoma has producers concerned and law enforcement officers on the hunt.
“As far as we know at least 23 head of cattle and one llama have been shot in recent weeks,” Nowata County Game Ranger Jeff Brown, said. “We don’t know how many may actually (have) been killed because there isn’t any blood or holes when you walk up and look at them. We also think there are probably a lot more that haven’t been reported.”
John Cummins, special ranger for the Texas & Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association’s District 4, which includes most of eastern Oklahoma, agreed.
