The Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help in solving a recent livestock poaching case.

That's according to a post on the agency's Facebook page. According to the post, someone poached a cow-calf and then dumped the body near mile marker three on State Highway 430. Investigators think it was killed somewhere else.

The post says the poacher(s) took the time to remove an ear tag that might have been used to identify the animal:

The poached animal is described as a short-yearling (this year’s calf) male Red Angus cross cow-calf. Its front and rear quarters, as well as its backstraps and tenderloins, were harvested. Its left ear, which is typically pierced with a small tag identifying the livestock's owner, was also removed.

Anyone with information on the case is being asked to contact either Deputy Merkley at (307) 705-6708 or, or ACO Thomas at (307) 705-5384 or
