NC farmer puzzled after cattle shot

Posted: Updated:

DUDLEY SHOALS, N.C. (AP) - A Caldwell County farmer doesn't understand why someone is shooting his cattle.

Eighty-one-year-old Jack Starnes says one of the cows on his farm in Dudley Shoals was shot and wounded in May. Starnes says five more have been shot and wounded this month.

He says several of those animals may have to be put down because of their injuries. Another cow was found dead, but it was unclear if it had been shot.

Starnes has about three dozen beef cattle.

Sheriff's deputies are investigating the shootings.
