ASPEN, Colo. -- Federal forest officials are thinking of using hand saws to break up the carcasses of frozen cows that died inside a cabin at 11,000 feet near Aspen.
The U.S. Forest Service had been exploring whether to burn the cabin or blow it up with explosives to get rid of the cabin and the cows. But a plan explored this week involves using hand saws to cut up carcasses of six cows frozen inside the cabin and four or five buried in the snow outside.

Just get the smoke jumpers in there with their chain saws.
Still thinking about this???????????
Geez... get 10 people and some rope, and just yank them out. Break off the parts that stick out too far.
what a buncha dumbasses.
this sounds like my little kids when they are too lazy to clean their rooms- they invent idiotic and stupid ways to get out of doing a little work.
Send me $10K for expenses (rope, block and tackle, chainsaw) and I’ll do it myself this weekend
Some talented people turn chainsaws to ice and make ice sculptures of cows. So, if instead you have a chainsaw and a frozen cow, what do you do?
Whatever it may be, doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.
Call Billy the Exterminator or Turtleman.
There were more than a couple of threads about using explosives. :) When will they make up their minds? LOL
Chain saws and hand held band saws are used in meat packing houses all the time.
You ever have a dead moose across a dirt access road ?
This really isn’t that big a deal.
I know they use chain saws on rails.Never seen them use a hand held band saw,but times have changed since I worked slaughter house. We knifed everything then busted it down with a hand saw.
This is starting to sound more and more like the plot line of a gross out comedy.
“We have to get them frozen cows out of the cabin before the spring thaw, Leroy!”
“But how we gonna do it, Axle?”
“How’s about we blow ‘em up with dynamite?”
“Nice deck, Bob. Is it made out of redwood?”
Toss ‘em in the hot spring
what a buncha dumbasses.
You expected what from the Government! These are people that would have a hard time getting a civilian job!
I didn’t do a search prior to posting....I was thinking what are the odds someone posted on this? Whoops.
Colorado officials can never, ever, be accused of brilliance, or even minor intelligence. I think they’re inbred :(
Awhile ago they spent over $200,000 to move a rare bush from the median of a highway over to the Presidio in San Fransisco. I imagine this cow removal will approach the $1 million dollar mark easy. I wish I were joking.
