Nearly two dozen cows have died after falling through the ice on Okanagan Lake.
Approximately 50 head of cattle wandered out onto thin ice Dec. 22, a witness told The Morning Star.
About half of them were able to get out from the north end of the lake, on the Okanagan Indian Band (OKIB). But the others have since died.
“They are starting to bloat and rise to the surface,” the concerned resident said. “But nothing’s being done about them.”
The Morning Star has reached out to the OKIB for further information.
