MILTON, WI (WTAQ) - Police in southern Wisconsin are looking for the person who shot a calf, stole its meat, and left the carcass behind.
The slaughtered animal was found Sunday night, after its mother was heard bellowing in a pasture rented by Ochs Cattle of Milton.
The company's owner, Ron Ochs, tells the Janesville Gazette that his company is on high alert -- and it's increasing its patrols at its grazing sites throughout southern Wisconsin.
Ochs owned the slaughtered calf. It was born in February, was bred for showing, and was valued at $1,000.
