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.
