The Kingman Police Department has taken numerous calls of cattle roaming into residential neighborhoods, causing damage and creating traffic hazards. This has been an ongoing issue for some time, however recently it has become significant in the Vista Bella area. Incidents are more frequent and damage is more severe. KPD is taking enforcement action and asking for anyone with video/pictures that show brands or ear tags on the cows to provide that information to the police department. In order to take enforcement action the owner of the cattle needs to be determined. There are several herds that are intermingled. Anyone with high quality video or pictures that clearly shows any branding or ear tags on the roaming cattle are urged to contact KPD by calling (928) 753-2191. Anyone who’s property is damaged or destroyed by the roaming cattle are encouraged to contact KPD for a report of Criminal Damage.
Investigators are working with state live stock officials and other agencies.
