Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 30-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, March 5, 1974 Rustlers roam in fancy cars "Where GOOD SERVICE is AUTOMATIC" AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION LTD. PteM 327-0910 1520 3nJ An. S. Guaranteed Servicing Rebuilding and Exchange BONN Cattle rustlers are roaming the range in West fast Mer- cedes cars and armed not with branding irons but knives.

One pound of beef most expensive costs on average 14 marks (about while rump steak costs about half that. Emil Meier of the Farm Animal Insurance Society in Karlsruhe, said more animals are being stolen every year, and not only cattle. With more than a million Turkish migrant workers in the country, plus many Greeks and North Africans, mutton and lamb are in great demand. The Germans do not like mutton. They raise few sheep, mainly for the wool. It is difficult to buy lamb or mutton in many places. So sheep have also been disappearing overnight in growing numbers, whisked away in unsuspicious looking haulage trucks. The close-meshed system of fast motorways criss-crossing the countryside and the heavy all-night haulage traffic favor the modern rustlers who can swoop on a herd, dispatch the beasts noiselessly and be far away with thetwoty a few hours later.
