Ross County Humane Agents recently responded to a call in Southwest Ross County concerning dead yearling calves. When THE agents arrived to investigate, they found three of the calves were still alive laying in mud.

-

Another live calf was found inside of a hay feeder hanging through the bars. The uninjured calf was quickly freed by a humane agent. The three calves that wer e found alive died soon after being pulled from the mud.

-

According to humane agents, when the owner was asked if he noticed the cows down in the mud, he stated that he did on the previous day. He also told agents that he figured they didn't have much longer to live, and would probably be dead by the next day.

The case has been submitted to the Ross County Law Director's Office.
