Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox says two different locations in southeast Livingston county seem to be the target for the cattle thieves.
Three calves and two cows were reported stolen in February in that area. Saturday, law enforcement took a report of two separate instances were someone took two cows each time.
The sheriff’s office is working with the Missouri Rural Crimes Task Force and the Highway Patrol as the investigation continues.
Sheriff Cox urges livestock producers to take addition precautions in protecting property and livestock. He says the theft of any livestock is a serious felony offense in Missouri and if anyone can help the investigation, they are asked to call the Livingston County Sheriff’s office.
