Officials in North Carolina’s Outer Banks say they’ve discovered three castaway cows that swam for miles to escape Hurricane Dorian’s storm surge on their native island

CAPE LOOKOUT, N.C. -- A trio of castaway cows has been discovered on North Carolina’s Outer Banks, where they apparently washed up after swimming for miles to escape Hurricane Dorian ’s storm surge.

Seashore spokesman B.G. Horvat told McClatchy news group the cows are grazing peacefully after a harrowing feat of survival, but they need to go home. He thinks they’ll have to be sedated for the boat trip.
