DENVER (AP) — It may take explosives to dislodge a group of cows that wandered into an old ranger cabin high in the Rocky Mountains, then died and froze solid when they couldn't get out.

Yea I've been wondering the same F_Chickie
I would think the Farmer would want the Beef.
Even if they can't get "Fit for human consumption" release
because of them being slowly frozen with their innards,
I would think they could be sold for dog meat,
Or Given to me

yea, 29 Alpo on the hoof is money anway
plus while 'you dispose of it for a cash basis' and no taxes and recordings of that transaction, you get the insurance of stupid cow coverage payoff
win win on stupid dead frozen cow situation
and they can't move them...well I have a chainsaw that can!

Its not that the cows were dumb but lighting a fire with cloven hooves is a *****...

Cows are DUMB ! PERIOD ! Leather bags of unprocessed meat that can be counted on to choose the stupidest option every time .

Logical but not possible. This area is a "Wilderness" where NO motorized vehicles can encroach. Yeah even to remove dead animals. There are no exceptions to this Federal law. Can't even land a 'copter there. The only way in is on foot. Only way out is on foot. If the animals thaw, rot and emit bodily fluids into the water table that might be bad. So there is our Federal Govt at work.

Last count was 20+ dead cows in the building. You can ski into the area and drag one out maybe?

You can go in on horseback, quarter some cows and bring them out on sleds.

There you go. What do you think. A chainsaw? And first you have to get one out of the shed. Myself I think burning the whole lot is easiest and best. Whether Colorado can manage a controlled-cow-burn is another matter. So far their success with fire is not good.
