Students accused of stealing cows

Why bother with cow-tipping when you can steal them? Three high school students in Ocala are accused of being teenage cattle rustlers, stealing 129 head and netting $20,000, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The students are accused of rustling cattle from farms along Interstate 75 and Highway 326 and selling them at area livestock markets.
