COLCHESTER State troopers herded two stray cows away from Route 2 on Wednesday, and one of the animals may have suffered a gunshot wound.
The troopers had guns drawn, and as they tried to keep the cows off the highway, a Fox CT crew heard a gunshot.
A wounded steer was taken to Nine Brothers Farm in Preston, where manager Adam Collins said he planned to keep an eye on it overnight Wednesday.
"It's never a good thing to have a hole in your head," Collins said. "Either way, it's going to need a vet if it doesn't get put down tonight. We'll see how it goes overnight."

////shaking head in bewilderment ...It's never a good thing to have a hole in your head."
**Asked if the troopers fired at the cows, Sgt. Jae Fontanella said, "There is one with what looks like an injury. Depending on what the vet says has to happen to it, it might have to go to the slaughterhouse."**
Looks like some of the DNC crowd got lost on the way to Charlotte.
Was Jim Carrey there?
Stupid a$$es. Who shoots a cow with a shotgun. Actually it was a steer, not a cow. Idiots.
This story reminds me of the cops who shoot the owner’s dog.. I suspect if a news crew hadn’t of been on the scene, and *heard* a shot................nothing would have been said about a cow being shot.
We have the most incompetent, sleezey, lazy, thieving crooked troopers in the northeast. HEEHAW!
Probably thought it was a big dog.
Maybe a pit longhorn?
It's especially bad when you wear a badge and carry a gun.
