ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA) – A local rancher had two cows die after a tree fell on them during an overnight storm.
Steve Chastain said it was a calf and mother cow that were killed. His other livestock was not hurt.
“Been very fortunate over the years to not have any damage. This is the first time we’ve had cattle killed by anything other than lightning. It’s a tough night, tough way to start the day,” Chastain continued.
Chastain says several trees fell on his property. The rancher said it will take him about a week to clean up.
