    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) — A team of Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers confiscated three feral swine from an El Paso County farm last year. Those pigs later tested positive for a disease that is potentially fatal to other livestock and pets. Acting on tips from the public, the CPW team visited the small farm located east of Colorado Springs on Sept. 3, 2020. The team had been advised that the homeowner there was raising feral swine illegally imported from Texas. Officers found the three swine in a small barn. They were euthanized and their carcasses seized. Blood samples were then sent to a lab for analysis. Those test results showed the presence of pseudorabies, “a contagious herpes virus that causes reproductive problems including abortion and stillbirths,” CPW stated in a press release Monday. “The disease also causes respiratory problems and occasional deaths in breeding and finishing hogs. Besides swine, it can spread to cattle, dogs, cats, sheep and goats.” A file photo of feral swine taken in 2020. (credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife) “This is exactly why we have...
    FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A farmer contends the city of Farmers Branch is effectively pushing him out over a disagreement on whether what he harvests is a crop, or just a nuisance. The undeveloped lots full of high grass that James Lockridge mows, dries and rolls into 1,500-pound round bales, provides hay for cattle and horses, he says. READ MORE: Diocese Of Dallas Reinstating Mask Requirement For Catholic Schools However, the same lots violate the city’s ordinance code on vegetation, stating grass and weeds can’t be any higher than eight inches. Following warnings to the property owners, the city has started hiring contractors to mow the lots, and send them the bill. Lockridge said he has sent his own invoices back to city hall, for the destruction of his crops. So far the city isn’t budging and Lockridge says he isn’t backing down. “I’m getting pushed out right now,” Lockridge said Monday. “After fighting for two months they went ahead and mowed two more crops this weekend. When’s enough going to be enough?” Lockridge’s company, Grassland Mowing and Commercial...
    Landon Mion, The Western Journal May 11, 2021 0 Comments Five unaccompanied migrant girls were found Sunday near Texas’s southern border after being abandoned and left to face extremely hot temperatures, according to federal officials. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the girls, who range in age from 7 years old to 11 months, were discovered Sunday on a farm near the Rio Grande River. Farm owner Katie Hobbs said her husband Jimmy called her around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday and sent her a picture of the five children he discovered on their property, according to KENS-TV. She said they found the girls abandoned on a blanket in the dirt, with the youngest crawling around without a diaper. “They were crying, they were scared, they didn’t know where their parents were,” Hobbs said. “He thought one of them was dead.” She said they gave the children water and snacks and called Border Patrol. Hobbs, her husband and farm employees tried to calm the children, who Hobbs said seemed unable to tell them where they were from or who their...
    A Texas farmer found five migrant girls abandoned on her ranch amid a steady stream of people crossing the Rio Grande to get from Mexico to the United States. "I found them about, probably around 8, 8:30 in the morning," Jimmy Ray Hobbs told Fox News’ Bill Melugin Tuesday. "They had been there all night." He said he found the girls, ranging in age from 11 months old to 7 years old, on a blanket on his property Sunday, north of Eagle Pass. One showed such severe signs of dehydration that Hobbs initially thought she was dead.

I guess they felt like somebody would eventually find them. Luckily we did." The girls had no food or water, temperatures were rising, and the Border Patrol had its hands full with an influx of border crossers, Hobbs said. So he called one of his workers who could speak Spanish, and they gave the children...

    Five abandoned girls from Honduras and Guatemala were found on Sunday on the land of a Texas farmer, hungry and crying after being left by their families to try to get into the country alone in yet another example of the heartbreaking border crisis.  All of the girls were under the age of seven and one was so young she was crawling. There was also a two-year-old in the group.  The 75-year-old farmer who found them gave an interview to Texas Congressman Tony Gonzales which was posted on Twitter.  He has not shared his name but he described himself as an onion and watermelon farmer who has lived on the land he owns his entire life.

    Five abandoned migrant girls, all under the age of seven, were discovered Sunday by a Texas farmer on his land in Quemado, near the Rio Grande River. Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, spoke with the farmer who said he discovered the "baby girls" hungry and crying. He said one was naked and was crawling because she was too young to walk. The farmer said it was very hot so he provided them shelter and gave them some food before authorities arrived. He said he does not believe they would have survived if he had not spotted them. The incident seemed to underscore the worsening situation along the southern border. The farmer told Gonzales that he lived on the farm since 1946 and he never experienced such conditions. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the girls will be in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services once they are processed. They ranged in age from 11 months to seven, according to ABC 7. Three of the girls are believed to be from Honduras and the other two from Guatemala. The report said the...
    No shenanigans here. Christmas came early for one waitress in Texas, who reeled after receiving a $1,100 tip from a generous group of customers. It was business as usual at Shenanigan's Sports Bar in San Angelo on Tuesday, when server Ashley Farmer was charged with taking care of an 11-person table, KTXS reports. As the meal came to a close, a customer called to Fleming and explained that the group had something special to share. AMERICA TOGETHER: FOX NEWS FANS SHOW US HOW THEY'RE SPREADING JOY THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON "We wanted to bless someone for Christmas," said Rodney Fleming, a former San Angelo City Councilman. "We're going to give you a tip. We're hoping that it's the best tip you've ever got in your life." Taken aback, Farmer opened an envelope and began counting $100 bills. "Y’all!" she exclaimed with a laugh, blinking back tears.

Layne Adams, 49, succumbed to the coronavirus after attending his mother’s funeral and began experiencing the same symptoms she had been experiencing. “One day he was in ICU and the next day he was gone,” Adams’ daughter Haileigh Muehlstein told KCBD. She said the family was devastated to hear the news that their father died from the coronavirus. Luckily, she said the community rallied around them in the coming days. Tom Gregory, a fellow farmer, knew Adams’ cotton crop had not yet been harvested. “I got on the phone and started calling and texting farmers and had a tremendous response,” Gregory said. “Farmers come together. We’ve got farmers here today from Floydada, Crosbyton, Ralls, Lorenzo, Acuff, Slaton and Petersburg. We’ve got about 20 machines going today and we’re going to get Layne’s crop harvested for the girls.” Gregory estimated around 75 people harvested 1,500 acres of crops Wednesday. “Without them, we wouldn’t have today,” Muehlstein said. “I’m...

    Image courtesy of Long Walk Spring Farm in New Boston, Texas — Faith Ellis prepares for the fall season. Faith Ellis is only farming six of the 85 acres on her New Boston, Texas farm – one of eight Black-owned operations left in Bowie County – because of the coronavirus pandemic.  Ellis, a disabled farmer, and her husband can’t afford workers to cross-fence, prepare soil, plant and harvest. She needed money from the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program, a U.S. Department of Agriculture fund launched on April 17 as part of the $2 trillion CARES Act.  But, Ellis said, after submitting her application, her local Farm Service Agency said she needed to complete a conservation plan, replant trees and register an updated component to her business plan, noting her husband’s veteran status.  Ellis estimates it’ll be six months to a year before she finishes her tasks.   A white farmer nearby did not have to complete these additional requirements to receive relief funds, Ellis asserted. When asked about this discrepancy, the USDA said it is committed to providing access to capital and...
