    I’ve been hearing and reading of more and more horses, dogs and cattle being stolen in ranch country. It’s a heart wrenching experience for the victim of that theft, plus a tough monetary hit. With horse and cattle prices high, it’s ripe for this sort of activity. Stealing someone’s dog is despicable. Keep an eye out, watch out for your neighbor’s stock, don’t tell the world when you’re going to be gone and don’t have a pattern of checking on stock. Be random, be suspicious. Security cameras are fine if they are at a level that one can make a clear identifcation of a face, not the top of a head. Game cams near gates and entry points would also be good. I’m still of the mind that a chunk of rope and a tree limb is none too good for thieves.

     That’s my circle for this week. Have a great week, pray for our nation, educate yourselves on the upcoming election, and be there in person to vote. God bless America.
