It’s true that hurricanes wipe everything out: cars, houses and even cows. Hurricane Ida in Louisiana recently showed his fury and, during the event, threw a cow on a tree. The creature was not able to free itself but, fortunately, the rescues intervened.
Hurricane Ida was one of the most powerful storms ever struck over the United States, with winds traveling at 230 kilometers an hour. The devastation was total and the damage to the property was huge. Ironically, the event took place during the sixteenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which caused more than 1,800 deaths at the end of August 2005.
Contrary to what you are thinking, it was not the winds that carried the cow over the tree, but the floods. In the videos that witnessed the animal’s libration event (which you can see below), the high tide around the creature that was slowly retreating can still be observed.
Similar situations, where animals are overwhelmed by storms, are not so rare during these events. In 2017, the cyclone Debbie threw a 1.5-metre-long bull shark in the middle of the city of Ayr, Queensland. In Thailand, however, ten crocodiles also fled during a flood in 2017.
