More big-time rustling

Posted By on Thu, Oct 29, 2009 at 1:38 PM

Earlier in the week, it was Kotex. Now, a woman who lives near the Marion-Boone County line has reported to Boone County authorities that 28 head of cattle -- 23 calves and five cows -- are missing from her farm. Authorities are on the lookout for a white Dodge pickup pulling a red or maroon cattle trailer observed heading south on Hwy. 7 on Tuesday, the last time the cattle were seen. The cattle were worth $15,000. (A dip in the bucket compared to the nearly half-million dollars in Kotex and baby wipes spirited out of the Kimberly Clark distribution center in Conway.)

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
