This case involves cattle that got loose and were struck on a roadway in Oklahoma, causing a fatal accident. During the year of the incident in question, the region suffered from a severe drought. The Defendants were responsible for maintaining the fences of a nearby pasture. When cattle do not have enough to eat in the pasture, they tend to reach through fences to grab nearby grass. Eventually, they will lean on the fence, and will eventually work through the fence to get to fresh grass, allowing them to get loose. It was alleged that the defendants were not maintaining the pasture fencing properly to accommodate for the cattle’s behavior during the drought.
