Palm Beach Sheriff looking for Cattle Rustlers. Wait, What?

By Mark Young, SouthFloridaReporter.com Managing Editor, Aug 25, 2015 – So I’m going through my emails and come across one from PBSO (Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office). Usually they’re about an accident, crime or other incident, but the subject line caught my attention: “Suspect(s) wanted for Stealing Cows/Bulls from a property in unincorporated Boynton Beach.”

Wait! Did I read that right? Cattle rustlers on the loose in Palm Beach County? Yep, pardner, here’s what the release said:

Unknown suspects cut the lock off the gate of a five acre property located in the 7600 Block of South State Road 7, unincorporated Boynton Beach sometime between August 22nd  at 8 am and August 23rd, at 10 pm.  Taken from the property were 12 cows/bulls (3 bulls and 9 heifer yearlings).  One cow was branded with Bar Lazy s W.

If anyone has information about this theft or the whereabouts of these cows/bulls they are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.

 

I did some checking and while cattle rustling is a felony, they no longer hang the thief, at least not in Florida.
