After the mysterious death of at least 36 cows by thunder strike on Okeowa hill in Ijare, Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, the secret behind the killing has been finally revealed.
Indigenes of the town have disclosed that the herders had earlier killed a long-age big python on the hill.

The killing of the snake, according to them, is a taboo and against the tradition of the community. The thirty-Six cows owned by some herders died mysteriously in the community after they were said to have been struck by lightning on Saturday.
According to the traditional sources, it was in revenge for the killing of the ‘sacred python’ that the gods of the community struck the cows in annoyance.
The traditional ruler and people of the community had earlier explained that the cows died after they desecrated the Okeowa hill, where sacrifice is made every year by their monarch.
But a source in the town said the cows died because the people abandoned the annual ritual at Okeowa hills.
“When you get to the palace, ask them when last they worshipped on Okeowa,” he said.
The Miyetti Attah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in the state described the death of the 36 cows as an act of God.
Its Chairman, Bello Garba, said members of the association had visited the area to ascertain what was responsible for the death of the cows.
He noted that their findings showed that the cows were not poisoned, as being insinuated in some quarters.
Garba said his members would always live in peace with the host communities.
