About 200 head of Longhorn and Longhorn cross cattle seized in early February in Hill County are now available for adoption.

Hill County deputies seized more than 350 head of neglected and mistreated cattle in early February from an 800-acre property near FM 933 and Patton Lake Road south of Aquilla.

About 20 died, most of which were found dead on the property.

Officials said others had to be euthanized.

More than 100 of the animals were later sold and the remaining 208 were turned over to the Humane Society of North Texas, which now has about 20 bulls, 13 steers, 63 heifers, 87 cows and 29 calves available for adoption.

“The cattle appear to be predominantly Longhorn or Longhorn crosses,” the Humane Society said Monday.

About 50 of the cattle are available now at the Humane Society’s ranch in Joshua.

Warrants were later issued for the owner of the cattle, but authorities said in June they can’t find her.
