Seth Ragsdale

Seth Ragsdale, son of the former agriculture teacher at Muskogee High School, Bruce Ragsdale, has been charged with cruelty to animals after almost two dozen cows in his care starved to death, according to law enforcement sources.

A Muskogee County deputy noticed the dead cows “lined up” at the ranch, half a mile east of Two-Mile Road, according to an affidavit filed with the case, and other cows laying around as well.

“There were several other cows that were in poor shape and could not stand up,” the deputy reported.

Bruce Ragsdale had entrusted the care of the cows to Seth while he and his wife were away, according to law enforcement, but Ragsdale neglected to make sure the cows were fed. By the time officers arrived at the ranch in Fort Gibson, 20 cows were dead. Officials seized 35 more cows, and three more died while they were in official custody.

The rest were returned to Bruce Ragsdale under condition that they not be placed back in Seth’s care.

The charges were filed against Seth yesterday.
