Rising rivers threaten some ND livestock

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring is urging ranchers to protect livestock from flooding.

Goehring says officials on aerial surveys along the Missouri River and its tributaries have spotted animals in danger of being cut off by rising water.

He says ranchers need to move those livestock to higher ground now, before it becomes more difficult to do so.

Goehring says ranchers along the Missouri, Knife, Heart and Cannonball rivers should be checking their animals and roads in the area on a daily basis.
