Disaster nearly struck a herd of about 100 cows Thursday after the wooden roof of a Richland Township barn collapsed under the weight of snow, according to officials.
Luckily, the bovine escaped unharmed, said Keith Schroy, Richland Township Fire and Rescue Chief. He said all the animals had been moved to a second barn on the property by the time his crew arrived at around 1 p.m.
No humans were injured, either, Schroy said.
"It was fairly basic," he said, adding that the two barns were relatively close together, thus limiting the length of the impromptu cow migration.
