The crime against cattle continues in Sioux County as officials say a rancher of two cows reported finding the cows shot in his pasture near Cannon Ball, N.D.

One cow was shot with a small caliber firearm while the other was shot with several arrows. Both cows were treated by a veterinarian. These incidents follow two earlier cases involving several dead and missing animals in the area.
