Investigators are asking for help in finding a person or persons responsible for the deaths of cattle in Port Barre. 

Brand Commission Inspectors say they received a complaint from a rancher in reference to cattle killed on a levee near Port Barre. A cow and three calves were found dead in a pasture near the levee on March 3, 2018. 

Officials say that the cattle appeared to have been run over by a truck.  According to witnesses, they say they heard what sounded like trucks mud riding in the area around midnight on March 3.

"Whoever is responsible entered onto private property that is clearly marked as private on the gate. There are also signs posted that state cattle are present on property," said LDAF Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M.
