A multi-agency investigation found dozens of violations and hundreds of dead cows on properties owned by or associated with rancher Raymond Christie, according to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office.

Violations range widely, from causing an animal to be cruelly killed, to dogs not having adequate water. Almost 200 cattle have been confiscated and other animals placed in the care of a responsible party.
