The cold weather blanketing the Dakotas is dangerous not only for people but also for animals.
Cattle are hardy animals and can survive extreme cold as long as they have adequate feed and shelter. But the cold can kill calves. South Dakota rancher Jack Dye says he and his workers are monitoring about 600 cows that are calving in the below-freezing temperatures.
Dye says he also has to watch out for himself and his workers, to guard against frostbite.
Pets also are risk. Circle of Friends Humane Society Executive Director Arlette Moen says some people in the North Dakota city of Grand Forks have offered to help pet owners who don't have adequate indoor or outdoor shelter for their animals.
