    “… and also they went with 2 of our children”. That one has passed rustlers and entered kidnappers now. It’s like the children were even the last things they noticed were missing.

    I hope this story is not made-up.
    73 cows against 73 lives.
    Tivs are now cattle rustlers .
    Abducted children were mentioned last.

    Notice how the story emphasizes on cattles and barely mentions the two humans missing.
