Local officials arrested the 57-year-old psychiatrist on Aug 29th and charged him with seven counts of aggravated animal abuse and first-degree criminal mischief. Why? Well, pull up a chair.
According to press reports, Dr. Rice arrived at his home on August 15th to find a number of cattle blocking his driveway.
“He was pretty upset about that,” Capt. Craig Ward, of the Union County Sheriff’s Office, told the La Grande Observer. Indeed he was. This was apparently another in a series of events in which livestock found its way onto the Rice property.
This time, Dr. Rice became so upset, reports have it, that he took a rifle and shot seven cows. Six of them died. Their bodies were found on Dr. Rice’s property.
