A Northern California rancher has been arrested after Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies found hundreds of dead and malnourished cows on his property. 

Deputies have arrested Raymond Frank Christie on numerous charges including animal cruelty. 

On March 19th a search warrant was issued at four Humboldt County properties associated with Christie. 
During their search deputies found approximately 250 to 300 deceased cows. Deputies say Christie had stacked some of the cattle in large 10 feet high piles. Others were located in or near waterways. 

A large number of cows were found in small areas, many of which appeared to be malnourished. 

Several dogs were also found on the properties. Deputies say the dogs were kept in small unsanitary conditions, without water.  

Christie was booked into the Humboldt County Correctional Facility with bail set at $25,000.
