Multiple cattle groups are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible of fatally shooting a cow in New Mexico last month.
The reward will be paid by the Livestock Board, New Mexico Cattle Growers and Grant County Cattle Growers. The offender may be charged with either extreme animal cruelty or injury to livestock, both are fourth-degree felonies.
The rancher discovered the dead cow on property southwest of Santa Clara, N.M. on Feb. 13. The Associated Press reports the $3,500 reward was announced by the New Mexico Livestock Board.
