WILSONVILLE, AL (WBRC) -
Bill Johnson has been in the cattle business in Shelby County for 33 years. In that time, he's never had his cattle killed until recently.
"Found one in part of the pasture and found another in another part and they was scattered around," said Johnson.
Those findings happened last week. Back in July it was the same case.
"It was like a .22 rifle, small caliber gun. They was painful. They walked, some of them walked around a day or so before they died," said Johnson.
In all, two calves were killed along with 7 cows that were all pregnant. That loss is now setting Johnson back by the thousands of dollars.
"Over a period of time it cost me close to 30,000 dollars. What the cows was worth and what they were going to bring me," said Johnson.
As a large farming community, the news has spread quickly to neighbors. Johnson said they are just as eager to find whoever's killing his cattle.
"Right now everything costs so much. Diesel fuel and everything is so fine line and you know one more bad day is going to put me out of business," said Johnson.
Shelby County sheriff's deputies say they do have leads but still need the communities help. If you have any information you're asked to contact them at 205) 669-4181.
