Ranch cattle targeted again

Another Coldstream Ranch cow found shot on Aberdeen Forest Service Road

Another Coldstream Ranch cow has been found shot.

The dead cow was located on the Aberdeen Forest Service Road Saturday. Police said the cow appeared to have been shot and it was determined to belong to Coldstream Ranch, which has seen several head shot and killed in recent weeks.

“Coldstream Ranch reported finding a cow shot and butchered on King Edward Forest Service Road in Coldstream on Oct. 7,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

“The rear end of the cow had been removed from the scene.”

Ranch employees have also reported a cow being shot and butchered near Postill Lake and, in July, a cow was found shot just off the King Edward Forest Service Road. Her calf was never located.

On July 11 a cow was found shot just off King Edward Service Road in Coldstream. Her calf was never located.

The ranch is prepared to pay a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals involved in the killing of cattle.

The animals are said to be worth between $2,000 and $3,000.


Anyone with information regarding any of these incidents is asked to call the RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
