Brand this as Louisiana-styled believe-it-or-not.
Louisiana Livestock Brand Commission inspectors arrested a Natchitoches Parish man Oct. 6 on livestock theft charges, Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, D.V.M., said.
James W. Kelly, 55, 174 Marie Street, Natchitoches, was arrested for theft of livestock by “withholding payment from the sale of cattle.”
Kelly was arrested after he sold a calf birthed by a stray cow that had wandered into Kelly’s pasture in Jan. 2011.
The legal owner of the stray informed Kelly that his pregnant cow was in Kelly’s pasture and asked permission to retrieve the cow. Kelly promised to return the stray at a later date when he penned his herd.
The calf’s mother was eventually returned to the legal owner in Sept. 2011 but Kelly allegedly sold the young calf at an Aug. 2011 auction.
Kelly allegedly did not remit the proceeds of the calf’s sale to the rightful owner.
Strain said the Sabine Parish and Natchitoches Parish sheriff’s offices assisted in the investigation that led to Kelly’s arrest.
Kelly was booked at the Red River Parish jail and posted bond.

Watch Louisiana Governor Edwards talk about CAT Tax failure
Rarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy.
Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.
On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments. Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.
Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.
Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
It’s D-Day or Draft Day tomorrow in the NFL.
More specifically, Thursday represents the first day of the NFL draft 2017.
The major President Trump news of the day focuses upon taxes, not only the tax cuts he is proposing but his own taxes, which he obviously, refuses to unveil.
At a press conference today, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said the CAT Tax did not pass the House Ways and Means Committee. The Governor, in addressing the media said that "the fate of that bill was decided long before we unveiled it".
