Yes, nothing could be more horrifying or more alien to human experience than cutting up beef.

Blowing them up would have been much more entertaining

Yeah, I was hoping to see cows asplode.

Another example of wasteful government spending. They need to privatize the frozen-cattle-dismemberment-and-disposal industry.

Hacksaws and hand knives? At least bring chainsaws.

jaylectricity: Hacksaws and hand knives? At least bring chainsaws.


That's what I was thinking. They are the forest service for God's sake.

Forest.

Trees.

Chain saws.

They probably had to go out and buy f*cking hacksaws.

I don't see why this would be creepy at all. Unless the cows were flash-frozen in standing positions, arranged in a circle around the beds where they'll be sleeping. And unless screaming noises came from the frozen cows when the forest service guys started laboriously hacksawing. Then we might have a story.

Lots of natural areas have bans on motorized equipment. no cars, saws, snowmobiles, generators, etc. Probably one of those areas.

Wait a minute..."Creepily frozen"? What is naturally frozen? Vacuum sealed in nice round patties? WTH?

Damn it I wanted to see a nice PETN BBQ WTF? now they gotta cut them to chunks, that is way more work than is needed to solve this problem. What's the manual say 40lbs per cow? Boom. problem solved.

Chainsaws are not allowed -- it's Wilderness with a capital W. No mechanical conveyances or power tools allowed by law.

That area is being loved to death...I just hope the residual animal kingdom interest in the area once the human hiking season really kicks off doesn't lead to...unpleasantness...for either humans or animals.

fun fact: you can use a clean chainsaw with vegetable oil where you put the bar oil to cut up a deer or moose that is too big to drag.

Forest Service May Blow Up Frozen Cows

think the original plan to asplode them would have made a better story

what a pre-frozen and aslploded bovine may look like

Yes, I am. And I'm pretty sure I know exactly what will happen, even if I hope it doesn't.

Or olive oil with a little garlic, butcher and marinade all in one.

loonatic112358: if they don't have one hell of a bbq after this, then they have failed


The cows were found dead in the cabin this last March and there's no telling how long they had been dead before they were found. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't be willing to eat any of them.
 
2012-05-03 02:30:10 PM  
I've got a battery-operated Ryobi chainsaw that I use for tree trimming. It's a little small and underpowered, but it might work. Because it doesn't use gas, it also may not fall under any ban on power equipment.

Also, for a job like this, you might consider bringing about 10-15 fully charged batteries.

good point

Forest Service officials explored burning or blowing up the cabin with explosives but decided to cut up the carcasses instead

They must have learned from the whale

So, you're saying medium-rare, just in case?

Slice them lean, with a good marbling and serve them next to a baked potato and sweet tea and I call that dinner.
 
2012-05-03 03:26:17 PM  
I still think they should put skis on them and let the swoosh down the mountain.

There was a great story a few years ago from Austria where tourists hiking in the mountains started complaining about exploding cows raining down on them. Turns out in the Alps this is an ongoing problem- terrain too rugged to easily get the heavy equipment up the mountain to bury cows that die on the upper pastures in the summer time. The army used to helicopter them down the mountain as a practice exercise, but then decided that was too expensive. Left with no alternative, the farmers started blowing them up. After a few ugly incidents with tourists taking unexpected dead-cow-guts showers, the government changed its mind.

Especially since all of that meat was never bled after they died, meaning their insides are probably more like beef flavored jelly with a hint of green fungus.

unless you are planning to eat the hooker just use regular bar oil instead, it's cheaper.

I love America. Any time something unexpected occurs, whether it be a beached whale, a shed of frozen cattle, or a clogged toilet, the use of explosives is always considered and never fully off the table.

/Know from docgrog's story that it works for other countries too.
//Still a fun stereotype.
