Cattle Rustlers? Did you just say ‘Cattle Rustlers?’

Are you kidding me?

Last summer, pushed by Jordan Valley rancher Bob Skinner, a past president of the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, ranchers overcame their reluctance to talk and started sharing information with law enforcement and each other. It quickly became clear that more than 1,200 cattle worth about $1 million had disappeared, far more than could be accounted for by the bones that dot this harsh country, or strays joining a neighbor’s herd.

“Ranch rifles” aren’t just for prairie dogs and coyotes, you know.
