Modern Day Cattle Rustlers

Here is an interesting article about cattle rustling.
Crashing through a gate in the dead of night, thieves using trucks and trailers recently robbed a farmer here of 53 Brahman crossbreed cows valued at some $50,000.

Known for a distinctive hump at the base of the neck, Brahman cattle are rare here and would be easily spotted at a local auction, leading investigators to think the rustlers already had a buyer — or a butcher — lined up.

There was a similar story here in Florida... only it was just a few cows and they were butchered right on the property. The "farmer" was terribly upset - not that these lovely beings were killed. But rather that he was denied his opportunity to do the very same thing to them.

In both cases, clearly the victims were the cows... even if left in the hands of those "abiding" the law. How's that for inside-out justice?
