SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- At least four cows have been found dead in 12-mile Canyon near Mayfield -- and witnesses reported seeing at least four more.

On Saturday, Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources recovered an arrow from the carcass of a cow, just one week into the general season archery deer hunt.

D-W-R officials have contacted several groups who were hunting on the mountain that day, however, all parties interviewed have been cleared.

D-W-R spokesman Brad Bradley says three of the dead cattle were found on Monday. However, they appeared to have died from natural causes.

Authorities are still looking for the remaining four cattle and are unaware if they were killed by hunters. Anyone with information about the dead cattle is asked to call the Sanpete County Sheriff's office at 435-835-2191.
