Langley Eagle Acres Dairy Farm

The owner of Langley’s Eagle Acres Dairy Farm had a shock last week when he discovered that Scorcher, his 5-day-old calf, was missing.

What troubled him more, however, was the blood and broken arrow in his place.

He quickly reviewed the footage from his security cameras, which shocked him yet again.

The video showed a man and a woman walking into the farm, trespassing, at 4.45 am on August 1st. For several minutes, the man shot the calf with up to six arrows, using a crossbow. He then entered the pen and stabbed it repeatedly with one of the arrows.

The man then dragged the carcass out of the pen and loaded it into his vehicle before fleeing the premises.

Post Mortem

“Looking at the video was a gut-wrenching experience. It was disturbing to us even being farmers who understand what death is”, Brian Anderson, the owner, told CBC.

Anderson posted two stills from the security cameras on the farm’s Facebook page:
