Their product was being sold in the city. Inspector Caldwell says that the record is the most unusual he has ever found. There remain several hundred cows to be tested.

Patrolman Calvin Hunter and Pinette went to the scene and spotted a fawn in nearby woods, but no dogs. Pinette said the little deer appeared tired, apparently resting after eluding the canines. Authorities report they will keep a close check on the area  and any dogs caught chasing deer will be disposed of.
