Reports have come in of anywhere from 30 to 40 cows that were discovered dead on the side of the roadway along HWY 63 travelling north of I-76 to HWY 6, just south of Atwood in Logan County this morning. Most of the cows were found close to the railroad tracks. Details are a little vague, but in speaking with Lt. Austin from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, he did confirm that it appears that a lot of these cattle were hit by the trains in the early morning hours of Thursday. (2/8/24) Reports are that the cattle may have escaped from a local feedlot, but as to which one, if any, hasn’t been confirmed.
