A cow killer could be on the loose in Limestone County, Alabama. Wendell Powers says he’s been raising livestock for 15 years and he just lost two of his beloved cows.

WAAY-TV reports the Powers believes someone intentionally shot and killed the animals and he’s looking for some answers.

Powers says the cows were valuable. One was registered a Beef Master cow, worth about $2,500; the other had a calf and could likely have been sold as a pair for about $1,400.

Powers said Friday that he filed a report with the sheriff’s office and they’re looking into the incident. He says he’s just worried that whoever killed the cows won’t stop there. He’s offering a $500 reward for any information that could lead to an arrest.
