Dozens of cattle shot for no apparent reason

CHELSEA -- State wildlife officers are looking for those involved in the recent shootings of two dozen cattle and a llama in northeastern Oklahoma.

Captain Jeff Brown with the state Wildlife Department said it appears someone is driving around and shooting the animals for no apparent reason.

Most of the shootings have been in the Chelsea area east of Oologah Lake and the latest occurred Christmas night when three cows and the llama were shot. Brown said it's often difficult to see if a dead cow has been shot because the hide closes over the bullet hole.

Any rancher who finds a dead cow should report it to authorities to determine if the animal was shot, he said.
