Kansas Heat Wave Killed Over 2,000 Cattle

Have you seen this footage circling the internet? I started seeing this go viral last night and have continued to see it posted throughout the day today. The Kansas heat has killed over 2,000 cattle (they're saying it could actually be more)

I just feel like this footage is completely shocking and just devastating.

Scarlett Hagins, from the Kansas Livestock Association, said cattle began to struggle over the dramatic heat spike this past weekend in western Kansas. She said it was incredibly difficult for the cattle to adapt to that kind of drastic change in weather.

Maybe someone who knows more than me, can you weigh in? Is it THAT much hotter than usual? These poor cows! I am so worried there was some kind of foul play here.

Stay cool out there and definitely watch out for your animals in this heat!
