"Cow destroyed after posing a danger to public"

Emailed in by Steve A, who adds "You’ve been neglecting your bovine stories recently. So here’s a case of mistaken identity that ends in death."

[Mea culpa, I got a bit carried away with sink holes.]

From The Swindon Advertiser:

A COW has been destroyed after escaping from a farm between Calne and Lyneham this morning.

Wiltshire Police were called to an incident shortly before 9am after a member of the public reported that a bull was on the loose on the main road. Members of the public were warned not to approach the animal while officers attended the scene.

It later transpired that the bull was in fact a cow…

JM, well yes, but we know that cows can be just as violent as bulls, so better safe than sorry, eh?
