Cows rescued in Texas as flood waters rise


WASHINGTON (Circa) — Almost 24 cows were rescued in Texas after being caught in some major danger as rising flood waters ravaged parts of Texas.

"The volunteer fire department came and said 'we need to move 'em, and we need to move 'em now," Jennifer Pliscott, owner of Valley Mills Feed & Hardware told KWTX-TV. "It was scary, especially because we have a newborn in the field."

Luckily, community members were able to help authorities transport the cattle to a friend's property.

"They were stranded, there was no way for them to get to higher pastures, so if the water would have kept coming into the pasture further they would have gotten really stuck, or really hurt, or washed away," Pliscott said. "It was an amazing experience that so many people in this town care and that they were willing to walk out of their houses and see what we were doing and help."

Police in the area are warning anyone with livestock to keep track of weather conditions and how it could affect them.
