  •  I am always amazed at the callowness of farmers (0+ / 0-)

    and ranchers toward their live stock.

    Granted they are cash on the hoof to people in the animal business.

    250 horses dead are cash in the pocket.  As he said he was insured.  If he had moved them to safety it would have cost him money.

    If the animals were running wild in unfenced, unbarricaded. uncitified country they would stand a chance of finding shelter, high ground, or running before the storm.

    One can only hope he was a least humane enough to put a bullet in their head before he abandoned them.  But bullets cost money.  Otherwise they died horribly terrifying deaths.
