GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) -- A reward is being offered for information about the killing and partial butchering of a cow on a ranch outside Green Valley.

The Southern Arizona Cattlemen's Protective Association will pay up to $1,500 for information that leads to a felony conviction in the case.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says the light tan cow was shot in the Navarro Ranch in late October or early November. The animal appeared to have been shot at least once and its front quarters removed.

Three other dead cows have been found on the ranch since early September.

Anyone with information should call the cattlemen's protective association, which was formed in 1955 to aid law enforcement prosecute crimes against its member ranchers.
