On the evening of Sunday, May 16, 2004 a calf was shot and killed on the 5900 block of Mountain View Road in the Kneeland area. At about 7:45 PM an unidentified witness told the owner of the calf that she had seen the calf shot by one or more people in a dark blue or black full sized four-door, short bed pickup truck.

A local veterinarian was able to confirm that the cause of death was from a gunshot wound. The owner of the calf estimated the value of the calf at between $400 and $500.

Anyone with information about this case should call the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at (707) 445-7251.
