Authorities in Texas are looking for the individuals involved in attacks on cattle in three separate counties.

Back in April, officials discovered six cows killed and mutilated, the suspects removed the tongues. However, this was not an isolated incident.
The first report was a longhorn in Madison County. Other carcasses would be found in Brazos and Robertson County, all missing their tongues and some with other mutilations.

A sheriff’s office stated that no predator or bird would leave the remains like this. They also went on to say, “Multiple similar incidents have been reported across the United States and we are actively coordinating with other agencies to find answers,” KSAT reported.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund is offering a $5,000 dollar reward for information in the case.

“Regardless of this case’s bizarre details, six cows are victims of these crimes. Since violent crimes are not always species-specific, we recommend this crime be taken seriously by the entire community. We will do all we can to support law enforcement’s search for answers and accountability for this case,” ADLF Managing Attorney Emily Lewis stated.
