RCMP are looking for a pair of cattle thieves who stole three newborn calves in southern Saskatchewan.

Last Thursday, a rancher saw two people stealing calves from his pasture near the community of Ormiston.

The rancher saw a dark-coloured Ford extended-cab truck parked in an approach along Highway 717. The truck took off when the rancher came toward it.

Mounties say three calves, three to seven days old, were stolen. They say it appears a male and a female were involved in the theft.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
