Cattle Ranch Tragedy

On the early morning on June 22 Delena Donathan says that some cows on their farm near Henryetta took shelter under a tree during a storm. Lightning then struck the tree and killed 11 cows that were underneath it.

“One bull, four pregnant cows and six calves,” Donathan told KFOR. “Now there are three calves that are orphaned, because their mommas were killed.”

The family says that they have a barn for the cattle, but that the cattle chose the tree for shelter instead.
