    EEEE!!!! HHHHAAAAAA!!!! Cattle Rustlers in Minnesota!! Where do we join the posse, Sheriff? Oh, well, let’s hope there are some good old fashion rustlin’ laws on the books. A good oak tree in the vicinity and some staunch long rope will definitely help the situation.

    Amazing with all the high tech gadgets and technology available we still have cattle rustling in the “civilized” USA. Maybe SEAL Team 6 should be called in, they always get their man! {chuckle} Modern-day cattle rustling certainly beats the political news for the moment. Don’t you agree?

    Better put an Amber alert for the steers and put all of the Meat Packing plants in the country – as well as sales yards in the country on high alert for a semi load of Steers matching the description of the rustled critters.

    How the heck does thieves steal 26 head of cattle without anybody hearing the cattle truck and/or the cattle mooing ? Maybe someone just let them out in the back forty.

    They ran off to join the Occupy Outback Steakhouse protest movement. Watch where you step.

    you people act as if it’s white trash to own cattle? im not sure if you read or not that they had $40,000 worth of cattle which is probably more than you losers make in a year. and i guess in the off time of working all day with the cattle and other jobs, they do get sleep so thats too bad they couldn’t hear miles out into a pasture? you guys need to get real hobbies..
