Goofs

When Beth helps Liam Ward extract his livestock from a bog, the beast can be heard to low, although there is no motion to indicate it is alive. Once pulled out, Beth points out to Liam it is dead so he doesn't waste any more time trying to clean it up. The implication in the conversation is that it might well have been dead for some time, so it couldn't have made any sound. See more »
