The Herald Tribune reports that officials found six dead cows and more than 70 malnourished cows at a ranch in Myakka City. Officials are considering charges of animal neglect and cruelty. The cows were discovered by Kim Reichard and his wife who saw the dead and emaciated cattle and could not ignore them:
"My wife was crying, and I was about to," Reichard said. "It was just so sad to see. We had to do something."
