The police were notified Thursday (February 12, 2004) that the animal was inoculated and placed on a worming program. They warn that anyone eating meat from the stolen animal may become ill and should seek immediate medical attention.

Police are also asking anyone with information about the theft of the cattle to call the KaÕu police station in Naalehu at 939-2520 or the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.

Crime Stoppers neither subscribes to “Caller ID,” nor does it record phone calls.
