ELKO, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Cattlemen’s Association and others have upped the reward in the search for suspects who’ve been shooting dozens of cattle in northern Nevada after another one was found dead last weekend in Elko County near Wildhorse Reservoir.

Nevada Department of Agriculture officials announced this week that the reward now stands at $28,700 in the investigation of 61 cattle that were shot over the past three years, including 11 that died.

Twenty-four of those have been shot since last summer, including eight killed.

The shootings have been in an area stretching from the center of the state near Winnemucca to areas around Wells about 60 miles from the Utah line.

Anyone with information should contact the Elko County sheriff at 775-777-2507 or state agriculture officials at 775-738-8076.
