Reward increases for information on cattle deathsThe reward fund for a cattle shooting near Hankinson in May has grown to $4,100.
FARGO, N.D. — The reward fund for a cattle shooting near Hankinson in May has grown to $4,100.
The fund was started after 13 cows and a calf were gunned down in David Kluge’s pasture near the North and South Dakota border.
The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association says it recently received $500 donations from Ransom Angus of Rutland, Sundance Farm Distributing of Hankinson, Wade and Lynn Moser of Bismarck, N.D., and Leona Bush of Bismarck.
Richard Clise of Camano Island, Wash., was the first person to contribute to the fund. He gave $1,000.
A $10,000 reward is being offered in a separate Oliver County case where nine head of cattle were shot. The owners of those animals put up $9,000.
The stockmen’s group offers a standing $1,000 reward in cases of livestock criminals.
