So tragically, the poor cow couldn't even make it to the abattoirs. It must be heartbreaking to die before getting killed to feed people.

Where is the owner of this cow? When the cow is stolen the owner comes forward sharp to complain but when the cow is the cause of an accident on the road, that cow belongs to nobody.

The accident was caused by the udder one.

But how is this quality news? If you are going to report about a cow you might as well discuss sheep, dogs and birds that get hit by multiple cars to avoid animal discrimination. Fair and equitable coverage for all animals

@Sabelo all animals are equal but some are more equal than others.
