It's no laughing matter for a local rancher after rustlers stole some valuable cattle.

It happened near Patriot, in Gallia County. Sometime overnight, someone backed two trailers into Chris Waugh's pasture and made off with at least 50 head of Black Angus cattle, valued in the neighborhood of $40,000.

So far, investigators have recovered five head of the missing cattle in neighboring Jackson County.

The Gallia County Sheriff's Department is investigating the theft.
