A daring heist by cattle rustlers in New Zealand has left authorities puzzled. 500 dairy cows valued at NZ$1 million were rustled from a farm located in Ashburton by rustlers who are yet unknown.
It is the largest scale cattle theft in a country that boasts more cattle than people. The distraught farm owner who owns 1,300 heads of cows has refused to speak to the press.
He has instead, taken to Facebook to issue a plea for any information on the rustlers. The New Zealand Police has simply said an investigation is ongoing and refused to comment further on the incident.
