"I WENT TO TOWN ON (TUES.) APRIL 28TH. EVERYTHING WAS FINE AT THE PASTURE DOWN THE ROAD. ON THE WAY HOME, I SAW FUNNY LOOKING STEAM COMING OFF THE WELL SITE. IT MADE ME MAD, BECAUSE NO ONE CAN SEEM TO GET RID OF THE HEADACHES, COUGHS, NAUSEA WE HAVE BEEN HAVING SINCE THE DRILLING STARTED," it begins. The report tells of a neighbor stopping by to report the cows in the pasture "dropping like flies" and what follows is a description of the situation, concerned area residents' response and the indefensible actions of the sheriff's department:
"ONE OF OUR MEMBERS DROVE BY, TAKING PICTURES, BECAUSE NOW THERE ARE OVER 30 DEAD COWS, ALL OF THEM PREGNANT, AND A DEPUTY WHO WAS PARKED, STARTED BLOWING HIS HORN, HOLLERING AT HIM, FLASHING HIS LIGHTS. WHEN OUR MEMBER STOPPED, THE COP TOLD HIM HE COULD NOT DRIVE DOWN THE ROAD, HE COULD NOT LOOK, AND HE COULD NOT TAKE PICTURES."
