The Day My Cowboy Stopped the Cattle Rustlers - The Final Chapter


...they have a good chance at getting shot at just because they are there. (We have no choice but to protect our own way out here.) So, they probably weren’t able to call for help that way either.

What I have learned from this…(1) there is NO ‘Honor Among Thieves’ (if there was, the truck driver’s companions wouldn’t have abandoned him and left him to take the heat alone); (2) crime doesn’t pay (he got caught, he will have to pay an impound bill and a tow bill – which will be pretty hefty because of where we live); (3) news travels fast (this all happened on Friday night starting around 10:00 p.m – we got a call first thing Saturday morning wanting to know what happened – we hadn’t even had a chance to tell anyone, not even our family); (4) John Wayne always wins (wait, I already knew that).

The moral of the story…don’t take something that doesn’t belong to you.

The previous story was a true story that happened to my family on Friday, February 4, 2011.

Jena, this is CRAZY! I can't believe this happens in our day and age, I thought cattle rustling was in the old west 100 years ago! I'm SO glad everything and everyone is ok! Hopefully world will also travel fast to NOT cross your cowboy ever again! Cattle Rusters BEWARE! :)

One of the officers that came to help said the same thing. He said "I thought stealing cattle just happened in the wild west." Frank told him that cattle were at a 30 year high. That means that they are almost as precious as gold - pretty valuable. If you get the paper, it was in Monday's (Feb. 7) paper, but it didn't call Frank by name.
