DARTMOUTH, Mass. — Cattle thieves have stolen 49 cows worth an estimated $50,000 from a farm in Dartmouth.
The bandits struck the communal farm sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight Saturday.
Dartmouth Police Chief Timothy Lee tells The New Bedford Standard-Times that police have "a few ideas" about what happened, but won't release details.
The farm on Old Fall River Road is reached by a winding dirt road and has been owned by Mary Robinson since 2001, although the cows don't belong to her. One man tells the Standard-Times that the owner rents out portions of the farm to tenants.
