Woman on Phone Drives Jeep into Herd of Cows: Cops
NBC New York ^ | Monday, Nov 4, 2013

Posted on 11/05/2013 5:24:24 AM PST by Gamecock

Police arrested a 21-year-old New York woman who allegedly drove into a herd of cows in Orange County, seriously injuring three of them.

Authorities say Daisy Cowit, of Wawayanda, was using her cell phone when she plowed her Jeep Liberty into the cows on Mountain Road last Monday. Six of the cows were struck, and two farm workers were nearly hit, police said.

Three of the cows had to undergo emergency surgery for their injuries; they survived.

Cowit was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and reckless driving. She also faces charges of driving while using a cell phone and failure to exercise due care, both traffic infractions.

It wasn't immediately clear if Cowit had a lawyer.

Cowit hit cows.

Say that three times real fast.

Seriously, she was probably on the phone trying to get directions to one of those upstate pie stands.

Her name is Daisy Cowit?

I guess I can see why she might have some resentment against cows... ...and her parents.

Looking at her, I think she would have problems chewing gum and driving at the same time. BTW, why were the cows in the road?

Instead of talking on her cell phone, if ditzy Daisy had been trying to apply her makeup, I think the whole herd would have gone down.

Speaking of makeup, did you know that cowpie was the basis of the original makeup invented by the ancient Egyptians?

Actually I did have that filed in the bottom of the old brain pan. I do not ever mention it due to an unfortunate incident involving a discussion along those lines and the price of modern makeup with Mrs. Mad.

Three of the cows had to undergo emergency surgery for their injuries

They were taken to the hospital in a Guernsey.

DITZY DAISY
Tune: "Daisy, Daisy" but then "Daisy, Daisy" when running into cows

Ditzy Daisy
Give your attention due
There's cows grazing
There right ahead of you
You're talking upon your cell phone
But soon you'll hear yourself moan
But you'll look hot
In your mug shot
After driving your car on through

The Chick-fil-A cows were unavailable for comment but in a statement released from their publicist they hope that AG Holder promptly pursues a hate crime investigation.

I’m calling bs on this one. When you see names like this, I have to believe they made the story up. First “Daisy” is a name often associated with cows, including the Borden’s Milk cow. Then the last name “Cowit”.

It just reeks of “slow news day and we have to write something”. Even the picture doesn’t convince me. That could be a stock photo from a domestic violence case.

i agree with you... even the name of the town she is from is too ridiculous to be true... Wawayanda!

Yup, you get a Kewpie doll.

The story is not very clear. The only reason I could think of is a broken fence. With two farm hands near by, they may have been trying to get the cattle back into the pasture.
