The Cows Strike Back

Cows may be bred for docility, but between having their babies stolen and being chained up in stalls, a number of cows each year decide to strike back:

…about twenty people a year are killed by cows in the United States. In some cases, the cows actually attack humans—ramming them, knocking them down, goring them, trampling them and kicking them in the head—resulting in fatal injuries to the head and chest.

There’s more. It’s pretty damned personal:

In sixteen cases, “the animal was deemed to have purposefully struck the victim,” the report states. In five other cases, people were crushed against walls or by gates shoved by the cattle. Ten of the attacks were by bulls, six by cows and five by “multiple cattle.”

Karma’s a bitch. Link.
