It wasn’t a lightning strike or anthrax outbreak that wiped out five calves on the Kowalski Ranch near South Shore, South Dakota. It was bullets.
Kristin Kowalski turned to Facebook over the weekend looking for answers:
We have had 5 calves shot. We had the vet come out and confirm today. Each calf had multiple bullet wounds. These calves suffered while they bled internally. We called the sheriff and this has been reported. My grandma is offering a 500 dollar reward to the first person that can come forward with factual proof on who shot these calves. Anyone coming forth with information will be kept confidential. if anyone has information please call myself at 16058818690. Or my grandma at 6057564461. Thank you. Please share so we can find whoever did this. Located in South Shore SD.
The family, which owns 100 head, estimates the loss at $4,000 The reward is now up to $1,025.
