UMATILLA COUNTY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say they’ve arrested two men for killing livestock illegally in Umatilla County.

Oregon State Patrol officials said Friday on Jan. 15 they responded to a report of illegal livestock being killed and butchered in Stanfield. A cow reportedly belonging to a local landowner had been shot and butchered the previous night.

Troopers say they found the remains of an animal that had been partially butchered and left to waste.

After receiving tips from the community, troopers say they arrested 21-year-old Anthony Haigh of Stanfield on numerous charges including aggravated animal abuse and possession of a firearm by a felon.

T.J. Kestler from Hermiston was arrested and jailed on similar charges.

Police say a third man from Stanfield has not been arrested but could also face charges.
