In Costa Rica truckers need permits to move cows. This is an anti-rustling law.
So Fuerza Pública officers in Guatuso stopped a truck Tuesday that contained six cows. The trucker had no papers.
The Cámara de Ganaderos de Guatuso y Ganaderos de San Carlos is continually complaining about rustlers.
Agents are investigating to learn the origin of the cows.
A favorite trick of rustlers, said police is to move the cows to a nearby farm where they are hidden but are not vulnerable to police checks.
