Farm Forum

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Hughes County authorities are investigating the shooting of 10 sheep belonging to a Pierre-area rancher.

Connie Weldin Carroll tells KSFY-TV (http://bit.ly/292ATpN ) that someone shot 10 ewes in a pasture – seven in the head and three under the chin. She says her family doesn’t have any enemies, and she’s at a loss as to why someone would do such a thing.

A $1,500 reward is being offered for information in the case.
