GATESVILLE — An attempt to round up cattle at Fort Hood unleashed a legal dispute among the cattle ranchers whose families originally inhabited the area.

Five members of the Central Texas Cattlemen’s Association filed a lawsuit Feb. 5 in Coryell County District Court against the group, claiming their rights to keep cattle at Fort Hood were wrongfully terminated. The men are seeking up to $200,000 and want their shares returned.

The setup of those cattle pens in PD94 is a restricted area due to unexploded ordinance no one at Range Operations would have gave them permission to set these pens up this article is false.
