The Gallatin Sheriff's Office and the Department of Livestock decide the more than one-hundred cattle seized last week from a Clarkston ranch will be returned to their owner.
The two groups met with the owner on Monday afternoon. Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin said the cattle will be moved back to the ranch in Clarkston, but when this will happen has not yet been determined.
Right now, it costs $500 per day to keep the cattle at the Headwaters Stockyard in Three Forks.
Gootkin said he will be meeting with the county attorney's office to find out when the move will happen.
"The department of Livestock and the Sheriff's Office will do periodic visits to ensure that the cattle are taken care of for a period of time," said Gootkin.
Gootkin said neighbors have also said they will help take care of the animals once they are returned to the ranch.
