The Greene County Sheriff's Office received a report from a cattle rancher in the Highway PP and Farm Road 156 area regarding apparent "baiting".

The farmer discovered feed along a fence line next to the road. Baiting with feed is intended to lure the cattle intended for theft into a trailer.

It happened during the overnight hours of Sunday, February 17.

Sheriff Arnott asks cattle ranchers to check their herds and fence lines often and promptly report suspicious persons or incidents by calling 911.
