Two Charged In Cow Shooting

NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut state police have arrested two men and are looking for a third in connection with the shooting of two cows at a North Stonington farm.

Troopers charged 18-year-old Max Urso of North Stonington on Tuesday with cruelty to animals and other crimes. Twenty-year-old Henry Williamson of Stonington was charged with hindering prosecution and making a false statement to authorities.

State police say they’re also seeking 23-year-old Todd Caswell of North Stonington on animal cruelty and other charges.

The two cows were shot last month at the Palmer family’s dairy farm. One cow had to be euthanized and the other is expected to survive.

It’s not clear if the three men have lawyers. Urso and Williamson are detained on bond pending arraignments Wednesday in New London Superior Court.
