LOUISIANA -- As Tropical Storm Barry splashed ashore in Louisiana Saturday a rescue team needed a boat to rescue some horses from a flooded field.

This is just one of several similar incidents. People were using watercraft to rescue horses, cattle and other animals.

The horses in this area were having trouble in pastures flooded with up to 12-feet of water in some places.

This operation was a success. The boat team got them all to safety.
