A steer that a lo­cal rancher had traded with a non­profit vet­er­ans or­ga­ni­za­tion in ex­change for leas­ing their pas­ture in Taos is on the lam.

Don Peters, one of the founders of Not For­got­ten Out­reach, said the steer be­came lonely af­ter its com­padres were taken off the pas­ture by the rancher. It broke out of the pas­ture, at Cor­ral No. 5, also known as the Mitchell pas­ture near Paseo del Pue­blo and Camino de la Placita on Tues­day af­ter­noon. It was last seen in the vicin­ity of Ran­chi­tos and Río Pue­blo. “The steer was our pay­ment,” said Peters, who was out Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon still search­ing for the an­i­mal.

The steer is black, with a JA brand on its right shoul­der and a green tag in its left ear. If lo­cated, call Not For­got­ten Out­reach at (575) 224-1503.
