OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is asking for help in solving a string of cattle thefts.

Capt. Jerry Flowers with the Agriculture Department agent said Tuesday the agency has received reports of 321 head of cattle being stolen since March.
Flowers says in Woodward County, a ranch hand interrupted thieves loading cattle into a trailer and traded gunfire with one of the suspects.

The truck was described as a red Chevrolet with chrome-type wheels. It was pulling a white Titan Gooseneck stock trailer with Kansas tags.

Scott Dewald of the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association says a reward of up to $10,000 may be paid for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing cattle from one of its members.

There have been 2 cases of cattle theft within 2 mi of my home in as many weeks , so with the price of cat tle going up I'm sure the theft activity will increase also. If the courts would get a little tougher on the rustlers maybe it would slow down, I know it'll never stop heck hangin didn't stop it why would a little jail time?
