Sheriff puts out 'Wanted' poster for cow killer
NAPOLEONVILLE - Cattle rustlers, be warned. There's a price on your heads.
The Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office released a Western-style "Wanted" poster Friday for information about a pair of recent cattle shootings in Napoleonville.
The sheriff's office said someone shot and killed a cow along Highway 402 Wednesday afternoon, likely between 2 and 4 p.m. Deputies said another cow had been shot in that location recently as well.
Investigators said they believe the cow was shot by a rifle but had no information on possible suspects or vehicles they may have been in.
The sheriff's office and Louisiana Cattlemen's Association offered a combined reward of $1,500 for information which leads to an arrest. Tips can be called in anonymously to (985) 526-1627 or 1-800-558-9741.
