BARRON - Authorities say a 47-year-old western Wisconsin man was arrested after officials discovered 25 dead cows on his farm.
The Barron County sheriff's office says the man was taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of mistreating animals and failing to provide food and drink to animals.
The Leader-Telegram reports the man was booked into jail, released and is due in court next month.
According to the sheriff's office, the department was told on Friday that the farm may have several dead cows. Officials executed a search warrant and discovered the dead animals, which had been dead for some time.
Investigators are working to determine what killed the animals.
