A video, which quite frankly looks like a scene out of an eerie apocalyptic film, has emerged showing a line of cows who were found dead along a fence.
Bobby Woody III, who works as a rancher in northeast Texas, has shared the gruesome discovery he made a few days after a lightning storm in late August.
The rancher says he found fifteen cows and eight calves dead on his farm, which is just outside Annona, last month.

As per the Metro, he said:
Each cow had burns on its stomach, showing how strong the voltage was.
The footage shows each of the lifeless cows lying next to the fence, with one in the middle of the field away from the others, which Woody claims was a result of the storms power.
Writing on Facebook, he explained:
When the lightening hit, it had such a strong voltage, it basically jolted one cow in the middle of the field.
Woody went on to say the incident was one of the wildest and craziest things hed ever seen.
Its likely that the lightning struck the fence, causing the electricity to jump, looking for a body to travel through, electrocuting the animals.
This isnt the first time a large group of cows have been killed by storms in the southern state. In August 2016, 19 cows were killed in east Texas while sheltering under a tree during a storm.
Its believed lightning struck the tree and the cows fell to the ground, according to reports in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
