"Motorcyclist killed after hitting cow on U.S. 41"

From Tampa Bay Online:

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Maurice Anthony Fugere of Cottage Grove, Minn., was navigating a curve in the highway just south of College Avenue about 7:30 p.m. when he struck the cow, which was standing in the road.

Fugere, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from his 1995 Harley-Davidson, troopers said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Spotted by Joseph Takagi, who adds, "Yeah, sure the cow just happened to be standing there..."

Never wear a helmet when in cow country.
