Dead Animal Surprises Mitchell Shoppers
Some Mitchell residents were stunned to see a dead longhorn in the city’s Main Street Saturday.
Police Sgt. Michael Koster says the dead animal slid from the bed of a pickup truck during one of the busiest shopping days of the year, Crazy Days.
The person hauling the carcass removed it from Main Street by hooking it to a chain and pulling it onto a side street while shoppers and shopkeepers took in the grisly scene.
The driver was cited for not securing his load.
