It is believed that they swam around 8 kilometers to the island.
The Cape Lookout National Seashore National Park, in North Carolina (USA), discovered three cows hanging around its territory and it is presumed that they got there, swimming, after being dragged by a high swell caused by Hurricane Dorian which hit the country last September, reports a local newspaper.
It is believed that the cows, belonging to a group of cattle that roam freely on Cedar Island, were swept away by Hurricane Dorian which, as it passed through North Carolina, generated large waves over two meters high that swept away of the wildlife of the place. Stranded cows would have swum more than 8 kilometers until they were safe.
National Park staff tells that the principle found a single cow (which they called Doriene) about a month after the storm and the other two were found in the past two weeks . “Doriene has found two of her relatives. The three [cows] look healthy and well. It’s amazing how strong and resilient these animals have been,” they wrote.
At the moment the fate of the bovines has not been decided, however, park officials wish to return them to their place of origin for what should probably be sedated and transported by boat.
