Watch for wandering cattle on county roads

YOAKUM COUNTY, TX (KCBD) - A viewer submitted this warning on our Facebook page:

"Due to the high winds and blowing snow, THOUSANDS of cattle are wandering around because the hotwire fences are down. People in Terry, Yoakum, Hockley, Gaines and Cochran county need to be aware of their surroundings the next few weeks as they are driving outside of the cities, including major highways, as well as the smaller Farm to Market and County Roads. Due to the massive numbers of cattle out, this will probably take a week or two as they are scattered for miles. Please be alert as you are driving as cattle may be in or near the roadway."
