Fedora cattle deaths under investigation

The November deaths of over 40 cattle on a farm south of Fedora are under investigation by multiple agencies.
The Miner County Sheriff’s office reported that 42 heifers and one bull died between Nov. 1 and Nov. 7 at the farm. Their cause of death is unknown at this time but authorities say the deaths are “definitely suspicious.”
Water samples from the farm were sent to North Dakota for testing, and tissue samples from dead cows were sent to Iowa. It is unclear when the test results will return.
The South Dakota Department of Criminal Investigation and Sanborn County Sheriff’s Office are assisting with the investigation.
