LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- In a situation like something out of the Old West, the Carroll County, Ky. Sheriff's Office is searching for cattle rustlers.
The Sheriff's Office says five cattle were stolen from a Carroll County farm last Friday. Four black cows and one belted Galloway were taken. The Galloway is easily identified because it is black on both ends and white in the middle. They were taken from Jim Sapp's property on Highway 47.
The Sheriff's Office says a relative of Sapp's saw a dark-colored truck with an aluminum trailer in the barnyard. Someone was loading cattle into the trailer. That relative called police just after 10:45 Friday night.
The trailer is said to have extensive damage to its left side. Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman says several thefts like this have happened throughout the state. "People are just pulling up in people's farms and loading the cattle," Kinman said. He says farmers should be aware of their livestock and any unusual vehicles in their area.
Anyone with information on the cattle theft is asked to contact the Carroll County Sheriff's Office at (502) 732-7010 or leave an anonymous tip on the Sheriff's website, www.carrollcountykysheriff.com.
