ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is considering explosives to move a bunch of frozen cows that died after getting stuck inside a cabin at 11,000 feet in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.

According to the Associated Press, agency officials are worried about the high fire danger and are looking at other solutions when they meet on Tuesday such as using helicopters or trucks.

The carcasses were discovered by two Air Force Academy cadets when they snow-shoed up to the cabin in late March. Officials believe the animals sought shelter during a snowstorm and got stuck.

The cabin is located near the Conundrum Hot Springs, a nine-mile hike from the Aspen area in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness area. Time magazine rated it one of the 50 top authentic American experiences in 2008.
