Police are investigating the vandalism of the Chickasha High School Ag Farm.

According to police, sometime between 10:30 p.m. Monday and 4 a.m. Tuesday, vandals broke into the barns on the Ag farm and let all the cattle, hogs and sheep out of their pens. Then, the suspects spray painted graffiti on the walls of the barn. They even went so far as to spray paint two show hogs.

The animals were found scattered around the pastures west of the barns Tuesday morning. Some cattle were even discovered along nearby 29th Street. Chance McPherson, the Ag Teacher, herded all of the animals back to their pens. None are missing.

However, the shenanigans injured several animals. McPherson told police two sheep got into a hog pen and ate hog feed, which is potentially dangerous to them. The two sheep are being treated and will have to be monitored for several days to make sure they are okay.

McPherson also reported that a black show boar had developed a limp that may keep it from being shown next week. It's believed the limp was caused from the boar fighting with other hogs, when they were all let out at the same time.

The two show hogs that were spray painted are okay, but will likely have to miss a planned showing next week.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at 405-222-TIPS (8477) or Text tips to CRIMES (274-637) and use the keyword, Chicktip.
