ABC 25 has recently reported on some thieves or maybe just one thief who somehow got away with stealing 262 head of cattle from a rancher in Lipscomb County, Texas.


The rancher’s name is Bob Adcock and Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association Special Ranger Ben Eggleston said Bob put up $10,000 of his own personal money along with the $1000 that Operation Cow Thief has put up to reward anybody who has information on the cow thieves.

They say they will give the reward to the person who can lead them to the arrest or indictment of the person or persons who committed the crime. If you have any information on the situation you can call 888-830-2333 and everything will be kept confidential and anonymous.

Bill’s ranch is called the Merydith Ranch and is located on 14135 County Road U in Perryton. He says the cows weigh around 500 pounds each and most of them are black, however, some of them are red and while others are mixed with different colors. Also, each cow has a Lazy 11 branded on their left shoulders.

“Any theft, but especially one of this magnitude, can just be devastating to a rancher,” Ben told ABC 25. “If you know something about this crime, please come forward so we can help him recover those animals.”
