Lightning Kills 52 Cows

In a huge “bolt” of bad luck, 52 black and brown cows found themselves victims to a single lightning strike. However, how does one bolt of lightning kill 52 cows at one time? Apparently, the cows huddled near a fence during the storm to seek safety but the fence was constructed with bits of conductive wire which appears to have allowed the bolts of electricity to run its course.

The picture that is featured with the news report looks like a mass cow suicide.

Incredible Lightning Video

While uploading the rest of my footage from the hail storm that hit northern Ohio on August 7th, I came across a featured video on YouTube of a lightning bolt. This was no ordinary lightning footage though as you can actually see all of the feeders traveling to the ground. Once one of the feeder bolts touches the ground, you can see the bolt light up with electricity. This is one of the best videos I have ever seen which clearly illustrates how lightning is formed.

Is this video a fake? Personally, I don’t think so. I think this video was taken with one of those super cameras which can take thousands of frames per second. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out this post I did on a camera which shoots 5,400 FPS.
