Cattle Thieves on the Loose in Wellington; Abducted Bovine Count Up to Six

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is looking for a pair of dudes who jacked six heads o' cattle from a Wellington property.

The agricultural-crimes unit at the Sheriff's Office says three bulls and three cows were taken from the northeast corner of 50th Street South and 120th Avenue South in Wellington, probably by their two suspects' loading the livestock into a trailer that's more suitable for lawn equipment.

The cops say the thefts happened some time between September 30 and October 3 but have just gone public with the cattlejackings today.

Thank goodness, we've got pictures of the missing bovines:

Police say one suspect is black, 20 to 22 years old, around five-foot-eight, with a medium build who was wearing a "very large" rodeo-style belt buckle and no shirt at the time.

The other suspect is a five-foot-11 skinny, pimply white guy around 18 to 20 years old.

Their truck is a non-new black Ford F-150 extended cab with paint peeling off the hood, a Navy SEAL license plate on the front, and an aluminum trailer.

Also, police say four heads o' cattle were taken from Loxahatchee, but they have no suspect information in those abductions.

If you've seen the cattle or the guys in question, call Crime Stoppers. If you've eaten a hamburger that may have tasted similar to the cows pictured above, let us know in the comments.
