Letter to the Editor


Friday, April 4, 2008

Dear Editor,

I am flabbergasted that this person is NOT being prosecuted for the suffering of the 111 cattle that died and the other 146 cattle that were alive and still suffering! In my opinion Red Willow County is taking the "cheap" way out! This person should be prosecuted to the fullest extent!

This person has disposed of the dead cattle and somehow gotten the other cattle to the sale barn after 111 of those poor creatures had already perished.

His excuses in the first article the Gazette wrote were nothing but excuses! There is no reason why he couldn't have found a way to take care of those cattle. His excuses of his tractor being broke down, it being too cold out or two flat tires are ridiculous!

In this day and age if he would have asked someone to help him I'm sure he could have gotten the help he needed before these poor animals suffered!

I would also like to add that I would make sure that this person is NEVER allowed to own cattle or any other kind of farm animal again!

With disgust,

Patricia Hanken,

  • I wonder how any farmer could afford to loose the value 111 head of cattle represents. We sure couldn't afford that type of loss when I worked on the family farm.
