Reward offered in cow shooting

August 24, 2006

Dougherty County  -- A reward is offered in the shootings of a cow and her calf in South Dougherty County.

Clinton Trice heard shots Tuesday night in his pasture on Hardup Road and then hear a cow bellowing. He saw an old dirty white pickup truck on the edge of his pasture and a man aiming a high-power rifle out the window.

The gunman had shot a six-month old calf as it was nursing. The calf was killed, and the mother was wounded in a hind leg. Clinton Trice said "I'd just like to know why would they do that. What would make a person so mean, just to ride down a road and shoot a cow. "

Trice said he saw two cars pass by the truck, so he hopes someone can help him. If you have any information, call Dougherty County Police at 430-6600.
