Ranchers advised to check on livestock
Houston County Courier
Houston County is currently experiencing a large volume of displaced cattle and other livestock in the areas affected by wildfires. The Houston County Sheriff’s Office and Emergency Management Operations are requesting that ranchers and livestock owners please visit their properties and check their fences and herds. If the owners of the livestock find themselves in a financial burden and are unable to provide food and water for their herds, local authorities suggest that the livestock owners make arrangements with friends, or the owners may contact www.animalrescuecorps.org. This organization can provide assistance and alternative methods for dealing with livestock during this time of distress.
