MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) -- Police in Mount Vernon, Washington, killed an agitated Angus cow that rampaged through town, tossing a police officer into the air and tap-dancing on a patrol car.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (http://is.gd/dm29HB) that police spokeswoman Shannon Haigh says the cow apparently escaped from a farm outside the city limits. It was first reported in a Wal-Mart parking lot last Friday.

You can’t help but admire a good tap dance on a cop car.

Steaks will Not be served until after the Bovine Tap Dance is aired.

After all, the Cow gave its all and deserves to be part of the merriment even if its participation be posthumous.

A martyr in the fight for bovine freedom.

He died well, now let’s hope he grills as well.

**killed an agitated Angus cow**

Tossed a cop? HOW! Angus are naturally polled, that is they have no horns.
A non pure bred angus may have horns.

I GET DIBBS ON A RIBEYE!

Angus cow? Aberdeen Angus cow? Black Angus cow?
There was no reason for them cops to just shoot her.
She was a good babymomma to her kids.
She was a good girl and aspiring rap singer just trying to turn her life around.

When I was copping in the 1970’s (back when we copped), I was dispatched over the Radio “ P-9. Go to Dieter’s and shoot the bull.” I had MANY friends who worked there, a slaughter house, and I thought “Why did she put that out over the radio? People are gonna wonder what the hell do I do all day.” I pulled into the parking lot and was immediately attacked by a huge bull that escaped from the chute into the slaughter pens. I jumped out, unloaded my .357 into it’s head and realized there were guys standing in the beds of their trucks (so this wasn’t good for safety.) I took the 12 Guage off the cage and emptied three rounds into the bull (two 00 bucks and a rifled slug) all it did was stumble and charge my cruiser. I got in the trunk and retrieved the .223 and finally shot it in the eye. End of story. Never lived that episode down. Still don’t know who wanted to BS with me.

“Are you sure she wasn’t a transgendered bull?”

No, I am not sure. I was just going by the formally accepted terminology that was used in the story. Hell for all I know it was not only a transgendered cow, but may have been a trans-species Jersey bull.

There is either a shortage of dogs to shoot in that town or they needed a larger target to practice on.

On a more serious note..

That officer is lucky to be alive and uninjured.

A few months ago a cow attacked a rancher (in the dark), threw him airborn, and the rancher landed on his head and broke his neck. It was a serious injury like the one Christopher Reeves got. The only reason the rancher wasn’t further injured was because his cow dog got the attention of the cow, and kept her away from the rancher.

This cow was thought to be dead because the area had a serious forest fire just a year prior. Apparently, she managed to escape and got bred. She’d hidden her baby in the hay stack that the rancher was attending and fixing fence around...in the dark, yes. So, he never saw her coming to protect her baby.

A serious concussion messed up his head for a while, and intensive surgeries repaired the breaks. He’s lucky not only to be alive, but still walking. He has a lot of physical stuff to attend to, and deal with.

So ya, that officer was lucky that he wasn’t harmed any more than he was.

Still, the way the story is written is funny.

I’m sure the dispatcher was laughing like crazy as he/she put out the dispatch...typical humor.
