SAN ANGELO, TX - JULY 25: The remains of a decomposing cow lies in a pasture July 25, 2011 on a ranch near San Angelo, Texas. A severe drought in the region has caused shortages of grass, hay and water forcing ranchers to thin their herds or risk losing their cattle to the drought. The San Angelo area has seen only 2.5 inches of rain this year. The past nine months have been the driest in Texas since record keeping began in 1895, with 75% of the state classified as exceptional drought, the worst level. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
