Just an interesting article.

U.S. "tick rider" agents guard against Mexican cows

LAREDO, Texas — Federal agent Ken De Yonge rides the north bank of the Rio Grande River on horseback, hunting down illegal border crossers with a sharp eye, a sturdy rope, and a magnifying glass.
De Yonge is not looking for illegal immigrants who swim the river dividing Mexico and the United States in search of jobs, or drug couriers who ferry marijuana across on rafts.
Instead, this modern cowboy scans the open range for Mexican livestock who are smuggled or who stray into Texas carrying ticks infected with a deadly bovine disease.
