Spooked cow tramples to death Palestinian trying to slaughter it for Muslim feast

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – A spooked cow killed a Palestinian man who was trying to slaughter the beast on Saturday during the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha, a Gaza health official said.

Muslims around the world slaughter sheep, cows and goats, during the four-day holiday that began Friday, giving away much of the meat to the poor. The Muslim holiday commemorates the sacrifice by the Prophet Ibrahim, known to Christians and Jews as Abraham.

But accidents are common as people frequently buy animals to slaughter themselves instead of paying professional butchers. The festive atmosphere at the site of the slaughtering also tends to make the animals fidgety.

The 52-year-old man who died was trampled to death, and another three people were seriously injured when the cow ran wild in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah, said health official Ashraf al-Kidra.

In all, he said some 150 people were hospitalized in the Palestinian territory with knife wounds or other injuries caused by animals trying to break away.

Two similar incidents occurred in Pakistan on Saturday.

Is this just a regular Joe who was killed, or someone that we have a grudge against?

I imagine a cartoon showing the cow holding knives, chopping the guy up and putting the pieces into CAIR packages (get it?) for the other cows and goats.

I'm more of a follow them and watch the fire-ants and fleas and ticks eat 'em kind of a guy.

Nothing is quite so funny as someone running into a bunch of prickly pears at night during a new moon. Full moon now, so I've got a few days to wait.

On the cook side of things, I am going to go collect some of the ripening prickly pears and make preserves this year. Brand new recipe. Cactus pears, ugly South Texas oranges, and the hot, hot jalapenos from the garden, as soon as they vein up and start turning dark.

Hay is dead grass. It's never fresh.

Changing the diet of an ungulate suddenly is BadThing(tm). If you've never dealt with colic before... bring a lunch or two. You might lose one or two.

Wanna do something nice? handful of oats or sweet feed at the bottom of the bag, and figure on squirts for a day or two. Don't approach from aft of abeam.

The cow figured it out. Just leave things alone and keep them the same. I'm sure she'll be happy with standard rats.

Cooks know stuff like that.

You just triggered a wonderful memory.

When I was a kid, I was always bullied by this one jerk who liked to pick on anyone and everyone. One school trip to the countryside, el-jerko thought it would be funny to sneak up on a couple of cows and scare the crap out of them.

Boy howdy did he!

Imagine a brown fire hose... caught him full in the chest. I don’t think I have every laughed harder about anything since.

He had to walk for about a half mile or more to somplace that had a garden hose and then had to go back to the school with a towel wrapped around his butt.

I’m sure he figured it wouldn’t hurt to poke the poor cow one last time in the stinky place. Oh, too bad, one less cow poker to worry about.

Obviously that was a typo. I stopped EATING beef and pork. Which I guess means I stopped heating it too. ;)

Knife wounds? Were the cows armed?

It is all a Zionist Plot! That cow was purchased from the English who conspired with the Zionist Entity to breed a violent variety of Jersey cow known as the Jewsey Cow. This eeeevil plot was a Moosad secret project.

Allah is all seeing, all knowing.

Now you know.

Must have been a Chick Fil-A cow.

When the muzzie raised his knife & yelled “Allahu Akbar!!”, ol’ Bossie replied “Eat more Chikin, Arselifter!!” and charged with flying hooves.

The last thing the muzzie heard was the terrible death moo.

;^)

There's far more to this than it appears. I'm betting "Lover's quarrel".

This is the result of DIY butchery practiced only once a year. It might be comparable to the occasional house fire caused by deep frying a turkey.
