Farmers Report 6 Calves Stolen Off Property

MELROSE, Minn. (WCCO) — Three complaints have been reported in Stearns County involving the theft of calves.

Between Friday and Saturday, the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office received reports from farmers that someone came onto their property overnight and stole the calves.

The calves were located either in a barn or calf hutch on the farm properties. Investigators say it appears someone parked their vehicle a little ways from the property, walked up to each farm and carried the calves away.

The calves are described as four Holstein bulls, one Holstein Heifer and one Jersey Heifer.

The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the thefts and asks for anyone with information to call (320) 251-4240 or Tri-County Crime Stoppers at (320) 255-1301.

    I hope thoes calves were not being bottled fed, If those low lifes don’t know anything about calves they could die.

    What is wrong with people today, society is going down hill and no one cares, What is it going to take for people to get involved again?

    • ranger

      You are so right…we’re going down hill and every one is too into themselves to even care anymore.. Very scary

  • jason sorenson

    people who steel cows have no life what so ever

  • Jackie D

    You are correct. People have to get involved and I am sure there are some people who are watching areas for these calfs.
    Pretty sad when you have to steal livestock.

  • J Tracy

    They sell these guys prewrapped at the grocery store…why bother stealing them?

  • Scott

    It’s because we are entering the last days where wickedness shall increase. Read Matthew 24: 1-14 in your Holy Bible.

    “When the wicked are in authority, sin flourishes, but the godly will live to see their downfall.” Proverbs 29:16

    • Sabrina

      Pretty sure that has nothing to do with cows.

  • Sabrina

    So, the world’s coming to an end because some idiot stole some cows?

    • stan

      I think they probably are going to eat some very tender and lean beef.But I also think the penalty for rustling cattle use to be hanging by the neck till dead. What do you think should happen?

  • Lando Lakes

    A big juicy steak sounds really good right now. mmmmm

    Stealing calves because the thieves are hungry, or their families are hungry? Or stealing because the thieves want to start their own diary herd cheaply? Or stealing calves because the thieves are doing/dealing drugs? Hope these thieves are caught quickly and jailed. Those calves are worth anywhere from $200 to $1000 each. You better believe we’re all watching our calves more closely now.
