LOGAN – More than 200 cattle have been reported missing from ranches in Hyrum and Preston this morning. Neighbors near the Hyrum ranch complained of cows on the loose around 9:30 a.m. It is unclear whether the two thefts are connected.

“Somebody stole the cows,” said Lisa Thompson, Cache County brand inspector. “We don’t know if they’re connected or not.”

Thompson said the suspects were last seen heading north toward Nibley in a truck pulling a fifth-wheel livestock trailer with Idaho license plates.

More information will be posted.
