PRATT COUNTY, Kansas – The Pratt County Sheriff’s office is looking into a possible case of cattle rustling.
Two men from Pratt tried to sell 17 head of cattle to an auction yard in Woodward, Oklahoma on Friday.
But officials there thought the deal was suspicious and detained the men for questioning before they were ultimately released.
“It’s very possible that the owner hasn’t discovered yet that he’s got cattle missing. There’s a lot of producers that don’t get to them as often as they should, and that’s what we’re concerned with now,” said Sheriff Vernon Chinn, Pratt County Sheriff’s Office.
The cattle are mostly black with one red heifer.
One of the animals is branded with the letter “K” far back on the left hip.
