Man promotes reward fund for ND livestock massacre

HANKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A man who contributed to a reward pool for a cattle killer in North Dakota says he's hoping donations will balloon like the vacation fund for a bullied bus monitor in upstate New York.

HANKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A man who contributed to a reward pool for a cattle killer in North Dakota says he's hoping donations will balloon like the vacation fund for a bullied bus monitor in upstate New York.

Richard Clise (klys) says he was angered when he heard about the 13 cows and a calf gunned down in David Kluge's pasture near Hankinson. Clise decided to chip in $1,000.

The 64-year-old Clise wants Kluge's story to generate the same kind of publicity that spurred sympathetic supporters to give over $500,000 to 68-year-old bus monitor Karen Klein, who was maliciously taunted by four seventh-grade boys.

The cattle reward stands at $2,500.

There are no suspects in the case. Clise says the reward fund will need to be bolstered until "somebody rats them out."
