Hurricane Dorian swept swimming cows 3km to North Carolina beach

Cows on the beach at the end of Cedar Island on Sept. 5 2019 the day before Hurricane Dorian hit the area

One of the bovine bodysurfers was seen soon after the Category 1 storm struck on September 6 and now two other cows have joined her at Cape Lookout National Seashore, Park Ranger Karen Duggan said on Thursday.

All three were living on Cedar Island when the hurricane generated a "mini tsunami" on September 6, sweeping much of the wildlife off the island, including 28 wild horses that perished, officials say.

"It's an incredible story, " BG Horvat of the Cape Lookout Parks Department told TODAY. They would have drifted off into the Atlantic if they were pushed any farther - the same fate suffered by some of the wild horses, the spokesman said.

"I guess if horses can swim, I guess cows can, " Flynn said.

"Remember, the cows and all the horses were swept away with the water surging back", Horvat told the Charlotte Observer. "Who knows exactly, but [the cows] certainly have a gripping story to share".

"There have been animals living on these islands for years and years and they've always found a way to survive", Pam Flynn told TODAY.

Next, the duo stop at "the lost city of Atlantic City, ' whereupon Patrick warns his companion not to 'lose focus". Luckily, their travels take them to Sage, a rolling ball of sage with Keanu Reeves' face floating in the middle.

Whoever owns the animals will have 30 days to claim them before the park deals with the removal process. But it must be done soon, according to Horvat.

The cattle, part of a herd of more than 20, and horses lived on 1,000 acres of privately owned land on Cedar Island. It is believed most died in the storm.

The majority of the animals will need to be sedated and taken back to Cedar Island by boat, according to Horvat.

Three cows have been spotted beachcombing on a remote barrier island on North Carolina's Outer Banks, swept to an unlikely grazing spot when Hurricane Dorian whipped waves powerful enough to carry them two miles (3.22 km) from their home. The resulting "wall of water" hit not only Cedar Island, but caused devastating floods on Ocracoke Island and ripped up sections of the coastal highway, NC.

"All three look healthy and well", the wild horses organization posted.
