HINDMAN, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police are investigating after six goats were found shot to death in Knott County.

Farmer Randy Bates told WYMT-TV the family noticed the animals were missing from their farm in the Kite community on Saturday morning. They went searching for the animals and found them at a creek. Bates said all six had been shot in the head.

Bates expressed dismay at the crime and said it must have been about hate.
