VIDEO: Police Herd Cattle To Higher Ground Near Dayton, Texas as Floodwaters Continue To Rise
You don’t see this everyday — even in Texas. Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc on the state of Texas. But, the flooding hasn’t broken the Texas spirit. In a heartwarming moment, Liberty County police “just outside Dayton, TX,” herded cows to higher ground. This is quite a sight.

Harriet Taylor of CNBC posted the footage to Twitter.
Of course, this isn’t the only eye-catching scene out of Texas. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, a photo posted to Twitter Sunday showed several elderly patients at La Vita Bella assisted-living facility in Dickinson, Texas trapped in waist deep water from flooding due to Hurricane Harvey.
The photo was posted to Twitter by Timothy McIntosh. McIntosh’s wife Kimberly told the Daily News of Galveston County the assisted-living facility is owned by her mother who sent the picture to them “at 9 a.m. this morning.”
McIntosh, who stated on Twitter he is Florida, posted the photo several times with messages including, “La vita Bella nursing home in Dickinson Texas is almost underwater with nursing home patients” and “Need help asapemergency services please RETWEET”. The photo was first posted at 9:57 a.m. EDT. The seniors were rescued in three hours after that with McIntosh announcing the rescue at 1:11 p.m. EDT.
