RCMP are investigating after the carcasses of two cows were found on Postill Lake Road in Kelowna.

On Oct. 18, the RCMP found the cattle roughly 2.5 kilometres up the gravel portion of the road, according to an RCMP media release.

“These cattle were not harvested, and it is believed they may have been struck by a vehicle,” RCMP Cpl. Cory Lepine of the Livestock Section said in the release. “We are attempting to determine how they came to their death and are appealing to the public for assistance.”

The owner confirmed to police the cattle were on an open range in the area.
