THE EDITOR, Sir:

Three cows were stolen from a private property close to Sussex, near to Top Road in Lime Hall, St Ann, in the wee hours of Friday morning.

The owner of the cows, Wayne Henry, works overseas. The caretaker who looks after the animals was off the property for some time. On his arrival, he heard one of the cows crying out, and went to investigate.

He saw one of the cows cut in two on the ground. The other three were missing. Their internal organs were found on the ground, along with feet, and heads.

The caretaker said he made an alarm and residents rushed to the scene. The matter has been reported to the St Ann's Bay police, who are investigating.

Henry's wife said she was distraught at the theft and massacring of the cows, as the family was struggling. The cows were estimated to be worth $600,000. The family is asking that the police and the Government do something about animal theft that is plaguing the Lime Hall community.
