Bossier Sheriff to Send Bull to Sale If Not Claimed By Monday
While I'll own up to the fact that I'm not much of a livestock judge, this animal gives me the impression that if he were mine, and he was missing, I'd be out night and day trying to locate him.
However, this animal was found wandering loose on Friday, October 14 by a local farmer in South Bossier Parish on Fairview Point Road in Elm Grove and to date no one has come looking for him.
The Bossier Parish Sheriff's Department caught the animal a week ago and currently have him penned for safety.
According to the Sheriff's Department, the bull has no brand or ear tag information, so there's no way for them to reach out to its rightful owner.
Here's the sticky part of the situation. As is the policy of the BPSO, the animal will be held for ten days before it is taken to the nearest sales barn (auction facility) to be sold.
If my math skills are correct, that ten day period will end on Monday, October 24. I just hope the owner isn't out of town or somehow indisposed, and completely unaware of what's going on. And I pray it's not some child's pet.
Should the animal be claimed, all costs incurred for the care of this animal are the responsibility of the owner.
If you believe this is your animal and you can identify it please call the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 865-2203 or the LADF Livestock Brand Commission at (318) 949-3225.
