A wild animal is believed to be loose in the woodlands near the farm home of Don Birkhead, 11 miles southeast of Mt. Vernon. Recently Mrs. Birkhead heard the herd of milch cows bellowing and running toward the barnyard, looking backward toward the timber. Mrs. Birkhead reported that one cow was almost crazy with pain. She found that the cow was slashed badly. A veterinarian was called and said it had been attacked by an animal similar to a bobcat. There were bites nd deep scratches on top of the cow's head, throat and back, as if an animal had been riding on it's back. So far as is known, no one in the vicinity has seen such a wild animal. * PERSONAL • (J. D. Wheeler Jr. Photo) Jack Casada and his bride, the former Miss Leta Shaffer. WE HAVE A BURNING DESIRE.
