Nowhere to mooove: 3 cows stranded by New Zealand earthquake

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Three New Zealand cows looked like they could use a little help after an earthquake triggered landslides all around them and left them stranded on a small island of grass.

Video taken by Newshub news service from a helicopter near the small town of Kaikoura shows two adult cattle and a calf stuck on a chunk of land in a paddock that had been ripped apart in Monday's magnitude-7.8 quake. The patch of grass was surrounded by deep ravines of collapsed earth, trapping the animals where they stood.

Kaikoura is close to the epicenter of the overnight earthquake, and where one of the two confirmed deaths occurred.
