Episode 583: Cow Noir
Note: This episode originally aired in November, 2014.
On September 9th, 2014, BJ Holloway's life savings were stolen. His 6 cows were taken in the dead of the night from his land in Spencer, Oklahoma. BJ looked everywhere for his stolen cattle. He asked his neighbors. He filed a police report. But out in Oklahoma, when cows are stolen, it's hard to find the thief. The cows all look alike, and the evidence disappears when they're turned into steaks.
Luckily for BJ, there's a cattle cop on his case. Jerry Flowers is a special agent in charge of the law enforcement section for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture. He's determined to find the outlaws who took BJ's cattle.
Today on the show, Jerry Flowers chases the cattle rustlers.
