Where will you go when the cow, whale, and/or volcano blows?
Instead of starting with Parrotheads -- fans of Jimmy Buffett and his songs -- for clues, we first go to Colorado, where the U.S. Forest Service is pondering what to do with a group of stray cows that wandered away from the herd over the winter, then moseyed into a ranger cabin, making themselves at home.
Problem is, the guest cows never left the impromptu cow hotel, but checked all the way out at some point during the harsh winter. Six cows are inside the cabin. A few more are outside. The carcasses were found in late March near the Conundrum Hot Springs in Aspen; what to do next has become its own hot conundrum this Spring.
