For anybody who loves steak and leather shoes and you’ve always felt guilty about that because you think cows are intelligent, well, I have good news.
From Yahoo Odd News: SPOKANE, Washington (Reuters) – A cow plunged from a 200-foot (61-metre) cliff onto the hood of a minivan on a highway in central Washington state, according to police.
The car’s occupants, Charles and Linda Everson, were not hurt in Sunday’s accident, but the cow was euthanized at the scene.
“If the cow had fallen a split second later, the animal would have landed right in their laps,” said Jeff Middleton, criminal deputy of theSheriff’s Department.
Middleton estimated the animal weighed 600 lbs (272 kilograms), or the average size of a mature cow. It had been missing for two days and wandered 5 miles (8 km) from home near the popular Lake Chelan tourist area.
Obviously, this cow wasn’t a California cow, because everyone knows they’re happy cows and therefore not as likely to commit suicide.
Below is the last picture taken of the cow, who was said to be depressed because sheep have it so much better.
