From our local newspaper yesterday:
"A man has been accused of shooting a cow with a bow and arrow.
Joseph ****, 36, was charged with a class 4 felony for criminal damage to property. **** turned himself in at the County Jail Wednesday and posted $200 bond for his release.
Conservation Police were notified Oct. 14 by a cattle farmer that one of his black Angus steers had gotten out of the pen. The steer was found dead on neighboring property after being shot with an arrow.
**** was charged after questioning. The steer apparently walked under ****'s deer stand where he had been hunting from and he shot it one time.
The steer was valued at $1,500."
He must of thunk it wuz one of them fabled 'giant black deer'. I wonder how much Jack Daniels he drank for breakfast.
