RE: Arrest made after livestock found shot. 
     Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Swan Valley area on Sunday afternoon by a rancher who discovered 5 of his cows had been shot and killed. Information from area ranchers identified a vehicle of interest that had been in the area at the time.  
     This morning Deputies made contact with a juvenile associated with the vehicle in question who admitted to killing the cows.  That subject was taken into custody and booked into the 3-B Juvenile Detention Facility.  The value of the lost livestock was estimated at more than $22,000 and Felony charges for Malicious Injury to Property are pending at this time.
