DENVER 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 couldnt get out.
The carcasses were discovered by two Air Force Academy cadets when they snow-shoed up to the cabin in late March. Rangers believe the animals sought shelter during a snowstorm and got stuck and werent smart enough to find their way out.

For some reason this makes me think of the chainsaw and the dead horse in Animal House.
Makes me think of Liberals...
While they wait, leave the door open so the ants, mice and vultures will do their job.
Then they can give themselves bonuses for only spending $2.5 mil on the meetings they held to discuss the problem.
Maybe they can find the guys that blew up the whale for some advise.
I was thinking the same thing. Nature will take of these critters soon enough. It may take a while, and will stink for a good long while, but it will get done.
On the other hand, blowing up a frozen cow *is* kind of a cool idea.... ;-)
I think I saw this on Monty Python once.
Fetche la vache!
Some stories you can just stop at the headline and not read any furthur because the images you conjur in your mind are usually so much better than the actual story.
It worked so well with dead beached whale. rolls eyes
What can go wrong?
Six dead cows? A hockey game that got out of control.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH - six dead cows that got some bad drugs.
“Awfully nice of that grizzly bear to show us this nice cabin. I think the storm’s over....let’s go out. Wait. The door’s locked. OH NO! WE’RE TRAPPED IN A GRIZZLY BEAR MEAT LOCKER!”
Why not burn the cabin and have steak...
Contact PETA right away. We want to make sure that the cows don’t suffer any more than they have.
The reason they froze to death by the way was that there was no bull around
In early 2000, while I was assigned to a US Army Readiness Group, I was sent to Camp Rilea, OR to train some Oregon National Guard soldiers preparing for a deployment to Bosnia. I met a senior officer, who as a young combat engineer lieutenant had actually been involved in that fiasco.
This has been done before with unfortunate results.
