A total of $11,000 now is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) who stole 16 calves and one cow in Wabaunsee County last month. The owners of the missing cattle are offering $5,000 and the Kansas Farm Bureau has tacked on $1,000. This is in addition to the original $5,000 offered through the KLA theft reward program, which only applies when the producer is a member.
The cattle were stolen sometime between October 9-16 from a pasture about 5 miles southeast of Wamego. The black- and red-hided calves weighed 400 lbs. to 450 lbs., are of mixed sex and had yellow tags in their right ears. Anyone with information on the cattle should contact the Wabaunsee County Sherriff’s Office at (785) 765-3323.
