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.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.
There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
It has been over three decades since our country’s last major tax reform was passed during the Reagan administration. Since that time, America has increased tax rates on businesses and individuals and become less competitive.
