Cow found shot, partially butchered in rural Racine field

Law enforcement is looking for an individual that killed and partially field dressed a cow belonging to a Mower County farmer.

According to Mower County Sheriff Steve Sandvik, a farmer reported on Monday that one of his cattle had been located deceased at approximately noon on Sunday in a field in the 27000 block of Mower Fillmore Road in rural Racine. The cattle, a 5-year-old Black Simmental Angus cow, had been shot while grazing.

The loss is valued at about $1,700.
