Police in California are still searching for two suspects that allegedly shot and killed three cows in December.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Ag Crimes Investigators were alerted on Dec. 17, 2018, that cattle were shot and killed east of Exeter along Yokohl Valley Drive. Upon arriving detectives found evidence of three mature cows that had been shot and killed. It appears the cows were shot from the road with a shotgun.

Authorities were able to discover through further investigation that a suspect vehicle was in the area. It is alleged that an early 1990s model Ford Ranger black in color with red interior and with what appears to be a spray painted Ford Emblem on the front grill was at the scene of the crime. There were two people in the vehicle described as Hispanic men and one of the men had a “man bun” haircut.

In a press release sent out on Jan. 8 the sheriff’s office says it is seeking aid in finding the “cow killers.”
