What Caused The Deaths In Real Life
A lawsuit was drawn against a local water company and DuPont after mysterious deaths of the cattle in Wood County, West Virginia. The event happened in 1999 when a local farm family sued DuPont following the death of their cattle and ill-health of family members exposed to the water. We will not go into details how the lawsuit ended as it can serve as spoilers for the movie. 280 cattle died whereas the exposed persons were facing cancer, sinus issues, respiratory problems, and skin diseases.
