Iowa men go on cattle-stabbing spree, attack 17 cows

itemprop

So much for cow tipping. Just go on a stabbing spree instead.

Two men in Poweshiek County Iowa are accused of stabbing 17 cows at a sale barn. Robert Edward Fults, 20, and Jamey Leroy Christofferson, 22, have been charged with 17 counts of livestock abuse.

When the sales barn workers found the cattle the next morning, they sent all 17 animals in for veterinary treatment. Three of them had to be euthanized because of the severity of their injuries.

Good news: This wasn't cult activity or insurance fraud. Cults are always our first suspicion after all. Getting stabby for the fun of it is usually our first hunch though.
