"I don't know why someone would do something like that," said Collins. "I've tried to come up with a logical reason, and I just can't come up with one."

The Department of Agriculture is expected to be in Delaware on Monday to assist in the investigation. If you know anything about the livestock killings, call the Nowata County Sheriff's Department at 918-273-2287.
