Cows washed away by hur­ri­cane found alive

The National - News - - WORLD NEWS -

Three cows were dis­cov­ered on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where they ap­par­ently washed up af­ter swim­ming for about eight kilo­me­tres to es­cape Hur­ri­cane Do­rian’s storm surge in Septem­ber. The cows, which were found near Cape Look­out this month, be­long to a herd that roams freely on Cedar Is­land. When Do­rian gen­er­ated a two-me­tre mini tsunami, it washed them and dozens of other an­i­mals away, in­clud­ing 28 wild horses that died. Cape Look­out Na­tional Seashore spokesman B G Hor­vat said the cows were graz­ing peace­fully af­ter a har­row­ing feat of sur­vival, but they needed to go home. He thinks they will have to be se­dated for the boat trip.
