Columbiana County Humane Agents investigate burned calf

Updated:

LISBON, Ohio- Humane agents in Columbiana County are trying to track down the person responsible for burning a one-month old calf in a Lisbon area pasture.

On Sunday morning, Edward Sabol found a one month old calf burned and covered with maggots. He took it to a vet who had to put the animal down. He said the calf was not hit by lightning, but it appeared an accelerant, like gasoline or lighter fluid, was poured all over the animal and then it was set on fire.

Sabol said it happened at some point Friday evening.

"I didn't find the calf until Sunday morning which means it walked around out there for almost two days without me finding it or knowing it was hurt," Sabol said.

The family farm, located on Lisbon Road in Lisbon, has been there for generations.

Damara Sabol and her sister are searching acres of pasture on horseback looking for the spot where the animal was set on fire hoping to find some type of evidence that could help find out who did it.

"I just think it's horrible the animal had to suffer like that because someone thought about doing something evil," Damara said.

Sabol says two years ago one of his cows was shot in the head. That animal also had to be put down.

The owners of the Canfield Auto Spa Car wash, along with two others, are offering an award of over $1,500 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever burned the calf.
