REDFIELD, S.D. — A herd of 75 neglected and starving cattle seized from an Ashton man’s property will be sold by the state.
Spink County Sheriff Kevin Schurch tells the American News (http://bit.ly/2v843y9 ) that livestock owner Rex Spear didn’t appear for a court hearing Monday to contest the move.
Authorities seized the animals late last month and charged Spear with felony animal abuse and misdemeanor animal neglect. He doesn’t have a listed phone number. He’s due in court July 17.
