On August 24, 2016 The Wardlaw family, Martin, George, and Kerr met with Edwards County Deputies, Robin Clark, Special Agent with the Southwest Texas Cattle Raisers Association, and the Game Warden Carson Wardlow concerning a carcass of a slaughtered calf that was found on their ranch located between Rocksprings and Carta Valley.
The hide of the calf was found on the Ranch Road that runs through the center of the Ranch. The calf had been intentionally skinned and the consumable part of the calf apparently had been taken.
The Wardlaw Family has offered a $5000.00 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons guilty of slaughtering the black calf with a ? brand on the left hip in July 2016, and any other livestock thefts on this ranch.
If this crime is solved, The Edwards County Sheriff’s Office will assist in having this individual(s) prosecuted to the fullest extent of the Law. Sheriff Pamela Elliott is seeking information from the public to assist in solving this crime.
