A Montana rancher has been arrested following the discovery of 65 dead cows, and hundreds of cattle alive but starving. The Cascade County Sheriff issued a news release about the sad situation found on property belonging to George Johnathan Savoy.
The release states:
The Cascade County Sheriff’s Office has arrested George Johnathan Savoy for Aggravated Animal Cruelty MCA 45-8217(2). The CCSO found at least 65 deceased cows on the Savoy property on Mission RD. There is an estimated additional 230 head of cattle that are still starving.
A team was put together to help the surviving cattle from starving to death. The sheriff’s office stated:
Thanks to a team effort by the Cascade County Commissioner’s, Cascade County Attorney’s Office, Public Works, and the State Livestock Inspector, we now have temporary food and water on the way to the property.
These cows and calves are in critical condition and we are assigning Deputies to care for them and assist with calving to attempt to save the remaining livestock. The commissioners are working on a long-term care solution for the cattle.
Help for the cattle
The authorities have requested that the community step up to help care for the surviving cattle, writing:
