Thousands of Cattle in the Pains of the United States have been left dead after a report of deadly wildfires burned through nearly 2 million acres of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas this week. Reports indicate that the results have left ranches devastated and thousands of cattle and other livestock dead.

 

Dry weather was to blame for the fuel behind these fires in the Texas Panhandle, north and western Oklahoma and southern Kansas. Although Several of the blazes were largely contained hundreds battled the fires on the ground and in the air.

Sadly Six people were reported killed from the fires, including three ranch hands in Texas who died trying to protect cattle from oncoming flames. The fires in Kansas were the largest recorded, at about 631,000 total acres (255,350 hectares), state officials said.
