TSCRA Special Ranger John Bradshaw, Dist. 9 in North Texas, and Wise County law enforcement are seeking information regarding the theft of approximately 10 head of black Angus cattle from a Denton rancher around Oct. 1.
On Sept. 30, the victim’s son checked on a pasture located on County Road 2740 in the northeast area of Wise County, next to Cooke and Denton counties. The chain and gate were damaged and left unlatched, but it was dark, so the son couldn’t tell if any cattle were missing. The next morning, on Oct. 1, the victim checked the pasture and realized approximately 10 head of cattle missing. The cattle are black Angus with no marks or brands weighing between 400 to 500 pounds, each. Most of the cattle were bulls, but there might be a few heifers in the group. Anyone with information on this case is urged to call Special Ranger Bradshaw at 940-389-6123.
TSCRA Special Ranger John Cummings, Dist. 5 in Eastern Oklahoma, also reports 2 branded steers missing from a pasture near Sulphur in Murray County. The steers weigh approximately 850 pounds, each, are black, black baldie, white or red and have a Bar / V brand high on their left hip. This brand looks similar to a flying U. Anyone with information on this case is urged to call Special Ranger Cummings at 918-342-0888.
Anyone with information leading to the location of the stolen cattle or the arrest of a suspect or suspects should contact TSCRA’s Operation Cow Thief hotline at 888-830-2333. Individuals reporting information may choose to remain anonymous.
