The Deadly Snow Synopsis

Preston Mitchell didn't buy the government's story about what had killed their sheep.

The Frightening Account of the Mitchell family in northeastern Wyoming began with a snowstorm in April 1959 that mysteriously killed 100 ewes and 300 newborn lambs and soon sickened the entire family.

The Mitchells called in local, state, and federal experts, who couldn't explain the losses to the Mitchells' satisfaction. Suing the federal goverment didn't help, either.
