Livestock mutilations reported near Gunnison
August 8, 2012
GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) — Four cases of mutilated livestock have been reported in western Colorado, prompting the Gunnison County Stockgrowers Association to offer $500 for any information leading to a conviction.
The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/P4ILdb ) that in recent weeks, a horse that was shot and had its head skinned at the LeValley Ranch property also had its tongue and anus removed. Less than two months ago, in an area off of Colorado 50 and Colorado 114, a prize heifer had its tongue, lips and anus removed. Two other attacks were reported on area ranches in May and July.
Gunnison County sheriff’s officials didn’t return phone calls from the newspaper on their investigation into the attacks.
