Six dead cows have been found in an abandoned cabin in the Colorado wilderness. Now, Forest Service officials are coming up with drastic measures to try to solve the problems these frozen moo-ers are causing.
FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal explains:
(Segin) “It’s an appropriately named creek, Conundrum Creek, ’cause we’re in a bit of a conundrum.”
Forest Service Spokesman Steve Segin says the wilderness area near Aspen is too tough to get to. They can’t use mechanical means to remove the cows, so they’re considering these three options:
(Segin) “First thing is to do nothing, is to let nature to take its course. Second is to use fire to burn down the cabin, as well as burn the cows. The third option is to use explosives to remove the cabin.”
…Scattering the carcasses. He says having these cattle there is a safety issue – as the weather warms and the cows thaw, it could attract predators to an area used often for recreational purposes.
