Two seperate mobs of cattle belonging to Nobbs Cattle Company mysteriously appeared in empty paddocks on Albeni, near Springsure, Queensland. On 28 February 2006 a posse of previously firendly neighbours arrived on Albeni to verbally convict an innocent man of the theft of the cattle. One Stock and Rural Crime Investigation Squad (SARCIS) member was part of the posse, swept along in the out-of-control hysteria. By the time the SARCIS team - whose jurisdiction the property resides - arrived, it appeared that Graeme McDonald had been tried and charged with the theft. As a result the McDonalds found themselves alone with no rights and no way of proving their innocence.
It is indeed a modern day mystery. Two mobs of cattle were planted on Albeni in waterless paddocks. By whom and for what reason? No matter which way you look at it, SARCIS appears to have no interest in finding the guilty party.
But it won't end there. The McDonalds are honest and innocent.
