Multiple Cows Shot in Logan County

Sheriff Offers Reward for Shooter's Capture and Conviction

LOGAN COUNTY, Ark. - Many are fed up after multiple reports of cows getting shot surfaced in Logan county.

Forty acres sit behind the Ullrich home, speckled with horses, chickens and cattle.

"Usually check the cows after I get home from work," Marcus Ullrich says.

When Marcus made his routine rounds Tuesday night the last thing he expected to find was blood pouring from bulletholes on one of his 20 cows.

"It's kind of hard for us people raising cattle to make a living if everybody is out trying to shoot them," Ullrich says.

Reports of multiple cow shootings in the Greasy Valley area prompted the sheriff to offer a reward on Facebook. He listed his cell number seeking tips to find the pasture prowler.

" [I] found out that a couple weeks prior to this had a lady down the road had one shot and it was shot with a high-powered rifle, and it killed it," Ullrich says.

Ullrich says his cow looks to be OK, but the father of three remains on edge knowing his livestock and livelihood are being targeted.

"People come by just shooting them; it kind of takes a toll on you."

He encourages neighbors to report any suspicious activity and leaves a parting message for whoever is aiming at animals.

"Surely you can find something else to shoot at besides livestock... go somewheres else besides here."

Anyone with information may call the Logan County Sheriff's Office at 479-963-3271 or the sheriff's personal cell phone at 479-847-6270. A reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible.
