BC floods: Farmers rescue cattle with jet skis in Abbotsford

CA, 18 Nov 2021
Farmers and community members helped rescue roughly 50 stranded cattle from a farm in Abbotsford, British Columbia on Tuesday after heavy rains swept the western Canadian province, causing widespread flooding, landslides and road closures.

After a month’s worth of rain fell in two days over many parts of the south coast, the Sumas Prairie region of Abbotsford was one of several communities ordered to evacuate.

Farmers and neighbours joined together, using motorboats, canoes, dinghies and jet skis to move dozens of trapped cows.

Meanwhile, dairy farmers in areas like Abbotsford, Chilliwack and the Interior are being asked to dump milk because mudslides and road washouts have made it impossible to transport.
