$3,500 reward offered in fatal shooting of cow

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP)--The New Mexico Livestock Board says there's a $3,500 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for fatally shooting a cow in Grant County last month.

The rancher who owned the cow found her dead Feb. 13 on his ranch southwest of Santa Clara, N.M.

Board officials say they could bring charges of either extreme cruelty to animals or injury to livestock. Both are fourth-degree felonies.

The reward is being offered by the Livestock Board, New Mexico Cattle Growers and Grant County Cattle Growers.

The last case investigated by the Livestock Board was late last year when several cattle were found shot near a road east of Las Vegas, N.M.

They say some of the animals were treated and recovered, but others had to be euthanized.
