“Burned Alive:” Explosion Kills 18,000 Cows In Texas

A fire, which Castro County Sheriff Sal Rivera said resulted from an explosion that spread to the building where the cows are housed, burned alive 18,000 cows in Texas.

A dairy farm in Texas was rocked by a massive explosion that resulted in the deaths of thousands of cattle, reported local media outlet KFDA

Fire crews in Dimmitt, Texas, responded to an explosion and fire that engulfed multiple building structures at South Fork Dairy on Monday evening. Reports suggest over 18,000 cattle were killed in the blaze.

Castro County Sheriff Sal Rivera said the fire resulted from an explosion that spread to the building where the cows are housed before bringing them into the milking area and holding pen. 

KFDA quoted the Animal Welfare Institute, saying this is the deadliest barn fire in Texas since 2013. 

Sen. Bryan Hughes (R) introduced Senate Bill 2334 on March 10, which could result in Texas launching its own gold-backed digital currency if it’s passed.

  1. This Dimwitt owner of this dairy farm should not be aloud to own cows ever again. Pure carelessness on his part to let something like this happen. This could be the work of some sinister people with another attack on the food supply. It is well known they want people to starve to death

  2. I know it is Texas and they do everything big there, but that’s a helluva BBQ. Not to dismiss the seriousness of it, but at some point, you have to laugh to keep from crying.)
