Cattle found dead outside of Pinedale

SUBLETTE COUNTY, Wyo. – Authorities are looking into a possible case of animal neglect after several cows were found dead and dying outside of Pinedale.

The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information from the public regarding a group of dead cattle located near Pinedale. On July 13, Sublette County Dispatch received a call-in reference to a group of cattle that was located in a small fenced-in area off Soda Lake Road near the elk fence without water or feed.

Upon arrival seven of the cattle were already dead, one had to be euthanized, and one was suffering from severe dehydration and is not expected to make it.

The Sheriff’s office said they know the cattle owners, but don’t know how they got placed in that pasture without water. They are looking for help but said they are hopeful it was a tourist who just pushed them off the road and didn’t know any better.

This case is under investigation. Anyone with information on how the cattle came to be placed into that pasture is encouraged to call the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office.
