Seized Herd Of Cattle In Spink County To Be Sold By State
REDFIELD, S.D. (AP) – A herd of 75 neglected and starving cattle seized from an Ashton man’s property will be sold by the state.
Spink County Sheriff Kevin Schurch tells the American News that livestock owner Rex Spear didn’t appear for a court hearing Monday to contest the move.
Authorities seized the animals late last month and charged Spear with felony animal abuse and misdemeanor animal neglect. He doesn’t have a listed phone number. He’s due in court July 17.
