RCMP are looking for thieves responsible for stealing cattle in Wheatland County.

On Tuesday night or Wednesday morning this week, six longhorn cattle were taken from a pasture near Highway 564 and Range Road 262.

It's believed the cattle were loaded and taken away using a truck and trailer.

The cattle are a mix of red/black steers and heifers weighing about 600 pounds each.

The cattle do not have any branding but are identifiable with purple management ear tags.
