Grass, Hay Thefts Reported

Some ranchers in the western United States reportedly are stealing grass and hay to feed their cattle, as the drought has depleted their own pastures.I guess this had to happen, although it’s not going on around here.

In some parts of the country, ranchers who have been dealing with drought reportedly are cutting their neighbors’ fences so their cattle can graze on someone else’s land.

We’ve heard of cattle being sold because the drought has dried up pastures, there’s nothing left for cattle to eat and ranchers can’t afford to buy hay.

So, in some cases, they’re stealing it.

Some of the reports I’ve seen came from New Mexico and Colorado, where one rancher reported losing $5,000 in hay to thieves who got into his field.

Desperate times do call for desperate measures, but I was raised to stay within the law.
