    This is a copy of the letter from the owner to one of the talk shows to help get the word out.

    Hi Ellen, I am writing to you in hopes you will help spread the word of the help we need. I am from Wall, South Dakota and we had a horrible blizzard here October 4, that killed thousands and thousands of cattle and horses. There has not been any national coverage or help. Our state needs help in finding our animals. We are all in heartache as this is how we make a living, and is also how everyone else in the United States eats. Our own President hasn't even acknowledged the natural disaster we are in. This picture is of some horses my family lost in the storm. We lost 10 out 13 horses and are devastated by the loss, which doesn't even count the thousands of cattle that was lost by some of our neighbors. People say this is animal cruelty but it is not. The animals did not have their winter fur yet and nobody knew the weather was going to turn like this. We are desperate to find our animals that may still be alive and need help and all the money that was lost in all the animals that have died. We are talking millions and millions of dollars that we cannot get back. Please help us in our time of need.

    I keep reading things on this. It's so horribly heartwrenching. Makes my gut hurt thinking about what those ranchers are going through.
