Arrest Made in Exeter Livestock Investigation

Investigators have arrested an Exeter man on more than two dozen animal cruelty charges after more than 200 dead cattle and a dead horse were found on a farm in Exeter.

30 year old Aaron Ogren was arrested by Fillmore County Sheriff’s Deputies Tuesday afternoon for 26 counts of cruelty to animals, theft by unlawful taking and two counts of prohibited sale of livestock.

Last week, investigators found more than 200 dead cattle and one dead horse on Ogren’s property near Exeter. Additionally, more than 200 living cattle were removed from the property after having been found in poor condition. Those cattle were transported to a nearby ranch and have since received care.

The investigation remains ongoing.
