Kiefer Sutherland - Alleged Cattle Crime Victim

1/26/2010 4:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kiefer Sutherland scammedKiefer Sutherland plunked down almost a million bucks in what prosecutors say was a cattle investment scam -- and the alleged perpetrator is being prosecuted.

Michael Wayne Carr convinced Kiefer to invest $869,000 ... in return, prosecutors say, Carr would go to Mexico, buy steers and sell them for a huge profit in the U.S.

Kiefer bought a ranch in Montana and pursued rodeo competitions -- he even won some roping contests. Who knew?

But according to the San Joaquin County D.A. in central California, Carr never bought the beef and sold cattle that he never owned.

Carr is charged with 12 felonies, including grand theft and embezzlement.

Another couple invested $177,000.

So Keifer has won some roping contests, huh? It doesn't specify what kind of roping, but there's a good chance it's the popular event of calf-roping. Calf roping is a "sport" where a terrified calf of 3-4 months old is running for it's life (if they are any older, the "macho" men can't handle them). Then this baby cow is roped around the neck so violently he or she goes airborne before slamming onto the ground. This process can break the calf's neck, legs, or back. His or her legs are then tied so they can't move.

Other rodeo events are equally cruel and cowardly.

So Keifer is violent towards animals, violent towards people, loves playing violent and sadistic characters on TV, and then he gets scammed trying to make money off of more animal death.

who knew he had had a ranch, did rodeo? do you guys read, watch tv? google him, you can see him on clips doing rodeo-it is a big part of his life. as for scaming him, don't think it was a great idea, but who knows, never know if he can get the money back ... besides, he is making like $5, $10 million a year... not a big lose for him, not that it makes it right.

Keifer is a great team-roper. He doesn't do calf roping. As for below...This is NOT Mike Carr. I know Mike Carr, use to go to a lot of his ropings that he and his wife Cathy put on in Linden CA. They had their own ranch out there. Mike was always in it for a quick buck. He has left more than Keifer and the couple in New Mexico high and dry. I know of at least 10 more people Mike Carr got to invest and then Mike took off the the money. Good think Keifer didnt get a hold of Mike on his own!
