Last Summer one evening, Roy David Yarborough was killed after colliding his motorcycle with a cow that had wandered on to the roadway, just outside of Tucson, AZ.

His widow, Angelica Yarborough, filed a lawsuit against Santa Cruz County, arguing that the cow was able to enter the roadway because of a downed fence.

Now, county officials are arguing on who owns the fence. Apparently, a local rancher (not the one who owns the cow) reported the downed fence to county officials before. But nothing happened.

Various ranchers claim that the county owns the fence, based on a grant from the State back in 1948. The county argues that there are no records of this. However, the county went ahead and fixed the fence last September.

Meanwhile, the county is having its insurance company investigate liability.
