Hill County Weed Control District Supervisor Terry Turner Tuesday gave an update on an issue he raised Thursday at the month's Hill County County Officials meeting - three horses died from eating water hemlock found in Bear Paw Mountain pastures.

Turner said Monday that someone told him they had lost a number of cattle from water hemlock.

He added to treat it one should use aquatic 2, 4-D herbicides.

"Look it up and learn to identify the plant, and if you do find it make sure you have gloves on and probably best to leave it completely alone and treat it with a herbicide," he said.
