Texans take farm animals home, including wild ones, to keep them warm during a blizzard
Recently, news from the United States has flooded the information space, but now most of them are devoted to the southern states, and in particular Texas. The fact is that at the moment the state is under the yoke of a blizzard. Residents and the municipality were not ready for the cold, which is a record for the area. 10-20 cm of snow and -10 ℃ does not sound particularly scary for us, but for the inhabitants of Texas it is a disaster, as people’s uninsulated pipes burst, and the dramatically increased demand for electricity forces electric companies to disconnect people from electricity.
But not only people suffer from frost, but also animals that are stuck on farms, in zoos and just on the streets. Some Texans did not abandon the animals to their fate, and literally took them to their homes. Now in Texas, you won't surprise anyone with a calf in the house. Bemorepanda collected some pictures.
