How does a person steal 18 cows in the middle of the day??
Connecticut farmer Ledyard E. Lewis was charged Friday (March 16) with animal theft after admitting he was a bovine burglar.
Lewis took the placid beasts from High View Farm in Tiverton, Rhode Island, because he claims farmer Arthur Smith owed him animal feed.
Umm…WHAT? If there is discrepancy over a debt, you don’t go ahead and do the MOST difficult thing ever aka transport 18 cows across state lines without telling anyone…and then admit to it a day later!
Plus, it can't have been enough animal feed to justify 18 cows…those calculations seem a little off.
Now the cows are stuck under quarantine in CT due to laws that require all livestock that cross state borders to be tested for certain diseases.
Once the creatures are deemed healthy, they will be safely returned to their Rhode Island homestead.
EXTREME! We think a phone call would have sufficed…but perhaps that trail had already been blazed?? We like to think so!
Ch-ch-check out the crazy cow story (above)!!
