HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A cow killer could be on the loose in Limestone County.

Wendell Powers says he’s been raising livestock for 15 years and he just lost two of his beloved cows.

WAAY-TV reports the Powers believes someone intentionally shot and killed the animals and he’s looking for some answers.

Powers says the cows were valuable. One was registered a “Beef Master” cow, worth about $2,500; the other had a calf and could likely have been sold as a pair for about $1,400.

Powers said Friday that he filed a report with the sheriff’s office and they’re looking into the incident. He says he’s just worried that whoever killed the cows won’t stop there. He’s offering a $500 reward for any information that could lead to an arrest.
