The RCMP are seeking assistance to identify those responsible for the cattle theft; it is believed the cattle were loaded and hauled away from the location using a truck and trailer.
The cattle are described as a mix of red/black steers and heifers weighing approximately 600 pounds each. The animals had purple management tags as can be seen in the attached photographs and they were not branded.
