Eight head of cattle found dead in Nemaha County

Eight head of cattle were found dead in late April north of Seneca, apparently poisoned by a bucket of Furadan, a trade name for Carbofuran, which controls insects in field crops, including potatoes, corn, and soybeans. The seven cows and a bull were able to reach the bucket and pull it inside the fence where they ingested it. According to Nemaha County Sheriff, Rick Vernon, he said that this appears to be an unintentional act, just someone leaving a bucket of a very nasty chemical in the wrong place. The cattle were worth an estimated $10,000.
