Roast beef!

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Lightning struck only once — but 52 cows are dead at an Uruguayan ranch.

The newspaper El Pais reports that the cows had pressed against a wire fence during a storm when the lightning bolt struck in the northern state of San Jose.

The newspaper said Friday that veterinarians at the scene confirmed the cause of the deaths, which happened Wednesday.

Two years ago, a guy in my town had 18 killed at once by lightning. They had congregated near/under a tree when lightning struck.

Ow! This event is more common than I thought.

Would it help if they fixed an antenna and a ground on the cows?
