Nothing mentioned seems likely given the small dead zone but obviously something did. I'd think lighting with enough force to drop 5 cows in that small of an area would leave some kind of mark on the ground? I wonder if they butchered and salvaged what meat they could. a fascinating footnote to a fascinating ride.
