Steer Wranglers

Mitchell LaRue and Ty Swiler (right) prepare to load a wayward steer Tuesday after it escaped from the Parsons Livestock Auction and wandered in a northerly direction. LaRue and Swiler found the steer on land east of Tank Connection, roped it and loaded it on Giefer Drive north of Walmart. Parsons police and city of Parsons Public Works employees kept the steer from the Walmart parking lot and kept traffic away from it.
