Farmer cuts snowmobile trail after the cow is shot in the neighbourhood

MADISON, Maine – A farmer who says that his pregnant cow was shot and killed near a snowmobile trail on his property in Maine will no longer let the public drive on the track.

The Morning Sentinel reports Clayton Tibbetts had allowed a local snowmobile club to maintain a route through his farm in Madison until the cow was found dead last week. Tibbetts says that he doesn’t know if a snowmobiler killed the cow, but the carcass was found about 30 feet (9 meters) of the trail.

The secretary of the snowmobile club says the club is considering hosting a fundraiser to compensate Tibbetts for the loss of the cow.

The shooting is being investigated by the county sheriff’s office and state game wardens.
