Couple accused of neglecting cattle in Nebraska Panhandle

HARRISON, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska Panhandle couple have been accused of neglecting cattle.

Court records say 25-year-old Calinda Vantine and 33-year-old Calvin Vantine are charged with felony animal neglect resulting in death or injury. Calinda Vantine said Wednesday that they couldn’t comment until checking with their attorney. A preliminary hearing for them is scheduled for Feb. 5.

Chadron radio station KCSR reports (http://bit.ly/1SOM5sz ) that a state investigator says the Vantines, of Crawford, were contracted to manage about 100 cattle during the calving season early last year but didn’t take proper care of the animals.
