Four cows were stabbed to death early this month and five others badly injured by an employee at an Arizona dairy who admitted to having used methamphetamine and alcohol beforehand.

The attack occurred late Sunday night October 4 at Citrus Valley Dairy in Gila Bend. Employees at the dairy called the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office to say that 27-year-old Mario Alberto Garcia-Leon, whom they knew as Ramon Sandoval, showed up at the dairy armed with a knife and “was acting crazy.”
