KAUNAKAKAI, Hawaii >> Police are investigating the shooting deaths of livestock on a Molokai ranch.
Richard and Roxanne French say a horse and three cows were shot and killed in December. Then last week, two pregnant mares, a stud and a cow were shot in a breeding pasture. One of the horses is clinging to life, while the other animals have died.
Maui County police are investigating and there are no suspects.
Roxanne French says each mare is valued at $25,000 but the emotional loss runs deeper. She says she’s angry, while her husband is distraught. They’re working on putting together a reward for information.
The French family leases land near the Kalaupapa Lookout on the north side of the island.
