Sorry for the slow-motion; I wasn't filming. A cattle truck driver flipped his truck while making a u-turn in Shreveport, Louisiana today. The back end of the trailer dropped into that ditch to the right which caused it to flip. There were about 70 cows in the trailer, of which around 25 had to be put down at the scene due to severe injuries. The assessment of these injuries was conducted by an experienced large animal veterinarian (whom I know, personally, and trust with my own animals) who euthanized the cows as humanely as possible via injection.
If you look at the under-side of the trailer you can see an opening that was cut where the cows that could move were herded out into a pin that was constructed around the trailer. There was one cut on the other side, as well. Unfortunately, not all of the cows could be extracted from the trailer this way so it needed to be flipped back over. The heat index was 108°F so a fire hose was used to drench the cows in the trailer until the process was over.
The horses were there in case any of the cattle escaped from the trailer after it was turned back over so that they could be roped and corralled into a pin off-camera.
