Heavy rain creates 'Cow Island' in flooded Sarasota pasture

- Some unlucky cows were stranded by rising waters in Sarasota Tuesday.

Drone video taken by Kevin Angell shows dozens of cows gathered on a spot of high ground while others waded through the high waters toward drier pastures.

The so-called “Cow Island” was formed in pastures at Palmer Boulevard and Ioana Road. It was not immediately known to whom the cows and pasture belonged.

Days of almost-endless rain left the cows stranded with little food and little or no shelter.
