LOGAN COUNTY, Oklahoma – Sheriff's deputies have arrested four people accused of killing and decapitating exotic deer on a Logan County ranch.

"For someone to come in and shoot one just for the horns and antlers and leave the carcass, that is unbelievable," said Jerry Logan, the ranch owner.

In September, someone broke into Logan's ranch and killed three of his exotic deer and a couple of sheep worth $13,000.

Logan County Sheriff's deputies stayed on the case and just arrested four suspects. Two of them are 18-years-old and the other two are juveniles. Investigators believe they killed the animals for fun.

"The suspects after they shot these animals, some of them that had their heads that were beheaded and some of them just had their antlers crudely cut off as if someone was trying to take a trophy," said Chief Deputy Rob Grosclose, Logan County Sheriff's Office.

All four suspects confessed and then ratted each other out.

Their total bonds combined for more than a half million dollars. They all face a laundry list of charges.
