GRAVES COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - An illegal dumping investigation is underway in Graves County after some cattle were sickened by garbage dumped in a pasture.

The garbage was dumped off of Cardinal Road, near Interstate 69.

According to the Graves County Sheriff’s Office, a landowner reported the trash in early November.

Deputies say cattle belonging to the property owner got into the garbage and ate some plastic. This caused at least one cow to die.

The sheriff’s office has identified two suspects responsible for dumping the garbage.

The sheriff’s office said more information will be released once the two suspects have been charged.
