Donations needed at red kettles in Fannin County
Posted: 12/05/2013 - BONHAM,TX---Red kettle donations across Texoma could have a big impact on the Salvation Army in Fannin County.
MURRAY COUNTY, OK -- A man was transported to the hospital Monday evening after hitting a horse on the highway.
According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 64-year-old Frank Holliman, was driving northbound on Highway 177, just south of Sulphur, when he struck a horse that was on the highway.
OHP said Holliman was transported to Integris Southwest Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he is in stable condition with head and arm injuries.
They said the horse probably got out through an open gate or a hole in the fence.
Oklahoma State University Southeast District Livestock Specialist, Brian Freking, says livestock owners can prevent their animals from getting out by monitoring their fences, but there other ways to manage them.
"One of the things you can always do as a manager if your suspect about your perimeter fencing is bring your animals to an area that is a little more stable like a fenced in yard closer to the house or that kind of thing," said Freking.
Freking says a big reason for livestock getting loose is because they are searching for food.
